No Victims

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a whole lot of peace and serenity in my life

to be able to shape, structure and build a new life as God would have it rather than the way I used to do it (this requires very slow progress)

that our little garden at Lambda is coming along nicely

for the kind of weather that's great; otherwise known as perfect

that I got to attend a 67th birthday party for a friend in recovery

that I am not meant to isolate - I once enjoyed the fellowship in bars, now I enjoy the fellowship in recovery

for wonderful fellowship at home with others in recovery while we watched The Astros first-ever World Series appearance

that, for me, even if The Astros don't win this series, that's OK because I would rather have been and lost than to never have gone at all (but I'd still much rather win it)

that Craig Biggio's wife was not seriously injured by a White Sox fan last night

The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.

NO VICTIMS... hmmm thanks I needed to remember that I am not a victim... I also really liked this one, to be able to shape, structure and build a new life as God would have it rather than the way I used to do it (this requires very slow progress)

GO Astos!
