Keeping an Eye on the Storm

todAAy, i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that as Hurricane Rita approaches, so many are doing so much to ensure safety as much as possible

that I bought all my hurricane supplies before the long lines

that my Mom will be fine in her home; she's not afraid and will be taken care of by my nephew; I will batten down her hatches today and tomorrow

that Scott and Larry are getting the hell out of town along with a few hundred thousand others

for a sponsor who is so understanding

that I am constantly reminded that God will not do for me what I can do for myself.

that we had a Katrina survivor from New Orleans at the 6:30am AA meeting today; he has gotten a good job here, an apartment and is almost 4 months sober

Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.

Evacuate and play it safe. Property is important, but the only thing that really matters is your life.

Here's hoping it turns into a Category 1 before it hits land.
