Happy, Joyous & Free

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for an informative and positive meeting with my Mom's cardiologist yesterday

for the power of prayer - each time, before I walk into her hospital room, I ask my God to give me the Strength and Courage to give her Hope -- and He does

for my sister's presence and wisdom when it's needed

that we are able to go through these difficult days with God in our midst

that obstacles become lessons when I'm living the 12 Steps

that my sponsor finally got through to me regarding prayer

that I don't have to move at breakneck speed with my personal recovery; a little bit each day keeps the alcohol away

for a sponsee who not only listens, but hears

that I keep learning more about the unmanageability of my drinking life

I am happy and content because I think I am.

The more I reflect on my drinking life and the further it is from my last drink, I wonder "was that ME?" But of course, it WAS me.

I thank God for my sister's wisdom, too.

I not only hear the words I listen to what it means...
