todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I was there to assist my Mom walk 50 feet yesterday outside of her ICU room. It took 30 minutes, 2 physical therapists and an assistant helping her, but this was her first time away from her bed in 17 days.
for Progress not Perfection in other aspects of living
that even when I have something worthwhile (in my mind) to share in an AA meeting, I'm able to sit quietly and listen (sometimes)
for drunks who return to the rooms of AA to try it again
that my Living Will is complete and filed away
that I understand and little more each day how precious life is and how quickly it can vanish
that someday I want to be willing to stop smoking (this is HUGE for me to even admit this)
for the cold front that has pushed the heat from Houston and given us some autumn weather
that I have no quarrels (almost) with anyone anymore
The days are too short even for love; how can there be enough time for quarreling?
