It's All About Gratitude

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a better understanding of the attention I need to give towards the financial/insurance/paperwork side of my Mom's illness and recovery

that to keep from being totally overwhelmed by her ordeal, I have to remember to live in the moment instead of worrying about what I have to do next week

for the opportunity to attend our AA Birthday Night each month; January 2006 being possibly the most fulfilling of the 28 that I've been to

that for me, it's important to not only remember my last drunk, but, to remember WHY it must be my last drunk

that my head is right where it's supposed to be -- on top of my shoulders

that I'm not an old, washed-up, useless drunk --- I'm middle-aged

There is no pillow so soft as a clear conscience.
-French Proverb

Oh, I thought the primary purpose was "to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers".

Hey and what about those traditions?

11. Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, and films.

12. Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.

I certainly agree with those statements. At the same time, I am wondering what I wrote that is in conflict with those statements. In other words, what prompted you to make that comment?
