Are You Meeting Tonight CR? YES!!!!

The biggest question I get on the Friday after Thanksgiving….”Are you all open tonight?”
I love that, because of wonderful volunteers and their sacrifice they make 365 days of the year, that I can answer that question with a resounding YES!!!
Truth is, recovery doesn’t take a vacation does it? Lots of times the holidays can be the worst for our family.
Thank you CR Forever Family Volunteers for making this possible to say "yes we will most definitely be here."...
I am full of gratitude today!

I love the great quote by Henri Nouwen:
"Gratitude goes beyond the 'mine' and 'thine' and claims the truth that all of life is a pure gift. In the past I always thought of gratitude as a spontaneous response to the awareness of gifts received, but now I realize that gratitude can also be lived as a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy."
"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." I Thessalonians 5:16-18
I love that! This is God’s will for you and I in Christ Jesus.
Thank you all the volunteers of CR who are a part of the army that says Yes to serve
Happy Thanksgiving!!!
