Unchained Gratitude

todAAy, i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for Dr. Bob's story - it reminds me of my decade-long experience with the DT's

for a little bit of exercise yesterday (yard work)

that I rarely overreact to situations any more

for my little Toyota RAV4

for the meeting yesterday on Step 4 sexual inventory; a sometimes difficult but necessary topic

that this morning, I'm going to a 6:30am AA meeting, then meeting with my sponsor, then meeting with my Mom and then going to a 12:15pm AA meeting, then eating lunch with the guys at Kelly's Country Cooking

for my overall health including a seemingly very strong immune system as I don't get many colds or flu or sinus probs that so many others suffer from

that somehow, I remain HIV negative after countless activities that were potentially deadly for more than 20 years

that I may be voted back on the Lambda Board after a long, 3 month absence LOL

Sounds like a day packed with activities. Tell you mom you love her.

Great list. I, like you, cannot figure out why I am HIV- and most everyone I knew from 1984-85 is long gone.

I am grateful your immune system is strong because I love you and well, I'd be sad if you were sick. That and the fact that I need you to come up here and help me with the yard work. Please.

Should I show skin tomorrow?

GreAAt list!

I've never been to a meeting regarding sexual inventory. I've often wondered why it isn't discussed in meetings. Maybe cause I live in the 'bible belt'?

I did go to a SA meeting one time but was disappointed no one tried to pick me up.

Yes, that's true. Sad, but true.
