The Absurdity of Insanity

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my Mom continues a very slow recovery from her strokes

that I am able to remain so strong for my Mom- so far

that whatever the news is today from her doctor, I should be able to make a reasoned decision concerning her future

for the Gratitude fundraiser held at Lambda on Saturday - much fellowship and great food

that I may be getting a slight glimpse into the meaning of "the road getting narrower"

to see more often why people are put into my life at certain times

to hear more about humility and realize I know nothing about it

that I will never know if I am "all I can be"

to see progress in others in their personal recovery

that I'm not standing on dark street corners at 6 o'clock in the morning

for the departure of my insane behaviour (craziness notwithstanding)

It is human to think wisely and act in an absurd fashion.

I was on my way to the Eyes Wide Shut 6:30am meeting. On the corner was a member of AA who can't seem to "get it." That person used to be a regular at that meeting until making some unwise choices. Breaks my heart.

that I will never know if I am "all I can be" but knowing that you are striving!
