Participation

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I was with my Mom yesterday during a visit by a Neuropsychiatrist who was able to clarify a number of issues for us

that my sister is taking the lead in locating a permanent living arrangement for our mother

for the power of prayer

that even though it took me more than 3 decades to see the need to stop drinking alcohol, it happened before I died

that my program of sobriety requires just as much (if not more) participation as my program of drunkenness

that being sober is much less expensive than being drunk

that I am not the British citizen, driving a German-made automobile, who led police on a 90-minute chase around the Houston area, endangering thousands of lives, ending with a head on collision with a car occupied by an infant and its Mom and Grandmother -- this guy deserves to fry

If I have learned one thing in this life, it is that God will not tie my shoes without me.

Hi baby--Wondered if you were up yet. And you are. I love the honesty and self revealing nature of your lists. Thanks.
