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.
