Turning it Over

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my Mom walked about 100 feet yesterday without a break and without getting dizzy

that after 19 days in ICU, she was finally moved to a private room

for insurance and Medicare

that I have been able to adjust my personal schedule so I can be with my Mom whenever she needs me (I don't have to hurry to conclude my visits so I can get to the bar)

that I'm currently working on Steps 2 and 3 with my sponsees which keeps ME right where I need to be

that when I can just turn it over to my Higher Power, I can accept the outcome

that Doing the Next Right Thing does not assure that the outcome will meet my expectations; in fact, the only expectation I should have is that God will take care of every situation

for an ability to make quick decisions when logistics are concerned

when I came to my Moment of Truth (to continue or stop drinking) it became my Moment of Courage

that a fellow blogger got a new job yesterday

that today is SW's 2nd AA Birthday
