todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I not only admit that I'm an alcoholic, but accept it as well
that by realizing that life happens each and every day while I breathe, I must accept that shit occurs
that I no longer have to accept poor behaviour in myself now that I am aware of it (usually)
to accept the fact that I need to attend AA meetings as long as I wish to remain sober
that through awareness, I must accept that I'm not perfect any more (and that you aren't either)
to see my mom accept the illness she has
for the continuing improvement Mom has made; she's now able to sit up in a wheelchair for short periods
to ALL the men and women who have served their countries by becoming willing to give their lives for others
IF IT'S SOMETHING I WANT, IT'S MY WILL.
IF IT'S SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS TO ME, IT'S GOD'S WILL.
