Clarity of Thinking

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the 3 days I take for myself each week because I get so much accomplished

for lunch yesterday with a bunch of "guys" from the 12:15pm meeting

for heart-to-heart talks with my nephew; something we never had until my Mom (his grandmother) had her stroke

that I have set a few rules for him (my nephew) to continue living in his grandmother's home

for the simple blessings of being sober -- a roof over my head, (too much) food in my stomach, overall decent health, people who care about me even when I don't see it, opportunities to help others

for service work -- helping to keep me sober since I stopped drinking

that I am much less critical of myself now than I was my first 49 years

that tomorrow is hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy -- all are welcome to participate!

DON'T WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT WHAT THINKING CAN'T CHANGE.

Thanks for the quote. It's like mental masturbation. It sure keeps me from getting other things done! PEACE

"people who care about me even when I don't see it,"

I care about you and I see you though you might not see it.
