another new beginning

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I get along with my Mom so well (now that she can't speak) LOL

for an additional 4 weeks for Mom at the nursing center (on Medicare) for her speech therapy

that I made it through another year, relatively unscathed, and wiser

for the beginning of a new year and the miracles I will get to see in the rooms of AA

that I can (and will) keep learning until I quit breathing (ie: my Mom never touched a computer til she was 77, then was soon sending me emails and surfing the net)

that I got to see Jeanie P. yesterday and that she may renew and recharge her AA program (I rarely include names on this list, but I must make this exception)

that I have tried my hardest not to whine and complain about not feeling well (I am usually a pretty "tough" guy except when I'm sick) This is truly new behaviour for me.

that I've actually attempted to take care of myself during this short (hopefully) illness

that the New Years Eve celebration at Lambda was a big success due to the efforts of many alkies

for the Twilight Zone Marathon over the weekend on the Sci-Fi channel

IF IT'S SOMETHING I WANT, IT'S MY WILL.
IF IT'S SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS TO ME, IT'S GOD'S WILL.

I find it a difficult task to not complain when I do not feel well. Congratulations on that milestone.

Ahh... you've finally answered the perplexing question of self-will vs. God's will! Thanks. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Complaining is very therapeutic. (except to those who are within earshot)

Complain all you fucking want. Geez, I whine like the best of them.
I see you bro I really do.

It was great seeing you yesterday. And, that party was already a tradition in its third year. You can count on being invited back. :-)

Was the jigsaw puzzle of you a Christmas present, because it is missing a piece.
