Entirely Ready ...

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

as a sober and recovering son, I can talk to my Mom very honestly and openly about my recovery and my feelings. I told her the story in the above post and she wrote to me (because she can't speak), "your wisdom amazes me."

that, with the exception of my 32nd year of drinking, I am considered very dependable

that we had a Step 6 meeting yesterday --- I once heard that most recovering alcoholics who relapse, do so because of not working Step 6. This is a constant reminder to remain entirely willing.

that my apprehension of sitting through a loooooong Board meeting last night, was wrong. It lasted 20 minutes, a record for us.

that we, as a Board, passed a new set of By-Laws after nearly 2 years of debate over them

that I have downgraded my severe cold to a nuisance cold

that my 3 cats provide me with so much entertainment

WHILE YOU ARE ASLEEP, YOUR DISEASE IS DOING PUSH-UPS.

WHILE YOU ARE ASLEEP, YOUR DISEASE IS DOING PUSH-UPS.

This is an absolute truth. I always say in meetings that sobriety gets harder as time goes by, unless you keep doing the work to maintain spiritual fitness.

Hooray! to the board for finally getting those by-laws passed. Now we can move on...NEXT DRAMA PLEASE!

Glad you're feeling better--and passing by-laws.

That is sooo true a good friend of mine always says that our disease is out there in the parking lot doing push-ups just waiting to kick our asses... cunning powerful and baffling...

thank God there is a solution :)
