todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for some frank talk between my sponsor and I
that I am constantly reminded (rightfully so) how screwed up my thinking can be
that I don't have to be perfect but I can be excellent
for the evolution of the concepts of Honesty, Open-Mindedness and Willingness as my brain continues to become clearer
that my commitment to learning to live sober may keep me from being committed
that I can occasionally turn down desert at lunch
that I live in a place that doesn't get too cold; I'll take the heat and the hurricanes but the temp here today is sure a nice change from the past 5 months (it's about 62 deg F)
that The Astros left Atlanta with a win and a day off
I'm getting old. I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees. Fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver's license.
The only way on earth to multiply happiness is to divide it.
