Thankful I'm Grateful

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I write this list 5 days per week, even when it's not Thanksgiving - this is my 425th list in sobriety

that I am anal-retentive enough to know that crap

Woo-hoo!!! that we committed to a Skilled Nursing Facility yesterday for my Mom; just waiting for the confirmation over this holiday weekend

that Mom was able to walk approximately 400 feet yesterday without her IV's or oxygen, using only a walker and an assistant with her

for anticipation of the noon meeting and the following Gratitude Pot Luck Lunch at Lambda combined with the fellowship of up to 300 others in recovery

for the concept of AA recovery without which I would be dead

that my recovery does not allow for excuses or days off

that the Houston GLBT Roundup begins this afternoon and lasts until Sunday lunch

The beaten path is the safest, but the traffic's terrible.

Happy Thanksgiving, Dave! You are awesome! Let's have some "coffee talk" at the R/U. hugs.

Bob did a great job leading that meeting. It was wonderful. And thanks Ricky, I forgot my camera this afternoon, will remember it tonight!

I'm so glad you got a place for your mom. And so happy she's able to walk that far. And that she has you there for her.
And don't give me that crap about that not being your ass between the other two turkeys...It was a great picture of you.
Happy Turkey Day
