the Simplicity of it all

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my nephew showed up at the nursing home to visit Mom while I was there yesterday

that Mom is still capable of making most of her own decisions

that I am sober and can make those decisions happen for her

that I got to hear the story of a good AA friend; a guy who is just now "stepping out of the box" with Courage and determination

for the concept of Pause When Agitated - this simple tool has saved me from making a fool of myself (more than usual, at least) numerous times since I got sober

that, in sobriety, there are multiple ways to accomplish goals

that today marks the 2nd AA birthday of one of my support group

for passion

Money is a very excellent servant, but a terrible master.
