Spotlight on Gratitude

todAAy i AAm grAAteful and thAAnkful

for a tremendously successful fundraiser Saturday night

to be witness to so much talent from a bunch of alcoholics and addicts

that when the going gets tough, the tough don't drink

that it is about time to make some changes

for some honesty from a young person having trouble staying clean and sober

that, by all indications, I am gay

that sometimes I actually Do the Next Right Thing

that when I Do the Next Wrong Thing, it can be painfully obvious

for a new friendship with someone in recovery

for reasons to stay up later than usual this weekend

that I've seen The Astros do so well - consistently

that I get to go to The Astros game tonight and have the opportunity to see them win their first pennant - ever!

Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.

I thought about ya when I heard the Astros were one game away. Good luck, they were up 4-2 the last time I checked. I like the sound of an Astros-White Sox World Series. I get tired of seeing the same teams in the playoffs every year.

I, who never watch sports actually watched the last part of the game. I'm sorry it turned out the way it did but there's always Wednesday. Of course, I immediately thought "Poor dAAve" he'll be so dissappointed. Hang in there.
