todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that my Mom spent the stormy weekend at my sister's home, north of Houston; safe, sound and dry
that my fellow Houstonians were spared the brunt of the hurricane
that a majority of folks were as prepared as they could be for what they expected
that I didn't lose electricity for 1 second (A/C and internet // hehe)
for receiving my 2-year Sobriety medallion Saturday Night @ Lambda
for air conditioning and Sonny at Lambda Center
for one of the great changes in my new, sober life -- I am comfortable to spend nights at home; previously, I felt like I had to be out every night, no matter what
that The Astros will be the wild-card winner in the National League unless they screw up (many would say that I am jinxing them by writing this; to that, I say fu*k off)

The right time to show your good character is when you are pestered by somebody weaker than you.
