todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
to have a friend like Scott, who lost his dog & companion Chester yesterday after a 16 year friendship; you're encouraged to click on his name and offer your condolensces
that I'm finished with my part of sprucing up the back yard @ Lambda
that I heard an AA story yesterday with some very familiar feelings
for much needed time with my sponsor this morning
that we no longer have gasoline shortage in Houston
for the promise of cooler weather - finally!
that The Astros won Game 1 of their playoff series versus The Braves
for the following that a friend sent me:
"We of AA are apt to brag of the virtues of our fellowship. Let us remember that none of these are earned virtues. We have been forced into them, to begin with, by the cruel lash of John Barleycorn. We have adopted these attitudes, these practices, this structure, not at first because we wished to but because we had to. And then, as time confirmed the seeming rightness of our basic principles, we began to conform because it was right to do so."
