A Desire to Progress

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

to see my Mom's ability to remain calm through her health problems

for the strength I receive from my Higher Power and my mother

that I have no desire nor need to medicate myself in good times or bad

for the support I get from my friends in AA and my Mom's friends

for a wonderful weekend of recovery activities - Dennis R's dinner for Scott, a celebration dinner for AA birthdays, AA Birthday Night @ Lambda, a preview of the AA Roundup play, final preparations for our AA Thanksgiving Gratitude lunch - all in addition to my normal AA meetings

that I am anal-retentive enough to remember that Sobriety is my Priority

to look forward to what shall be my busiest week of my 2+ years in recovery -- with serenity and a peace of mind that is new to me (see post below)

for the power of prayer

that I'll never really know if I am being all that I can be, but it sure is a great goal

LIFE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A DAILY STURGGLE.

I can't find "STURGGLE" in the dictionary. But sometimes I struggle with my typing before coffee and after coffee. Go figure ;)

Well, I often sturggle--especially early in the morning which is why this is later in the day. I finish sturrgling around noon.

It's Monday and I didn't have to go to work. I'm not struggling too hard.
