Reality

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

once again, for the concept of restraint of tongue and pen

for Rule # 62 ... Don't take yourself too seriously

that I have rarely gotten in life the consequences that I deserve for the wrong things I have done

that each day, my buttons get a little harder to push as long as I don't keep them lubricated

for the truth of the statement "that we are a group of people who would not ordinarily mix"; in my 2+ years in AA, I have met one person who knew me when I drank, but I didn't remember him

for coffee at Starbuck's with friends

that tomorrow is HNT

NOTHING CHANGES UNTIL IT BECOMES REAL.

that I have rarely gotten in life the consequences that I deserve for the wrong things I have done--THAT's the one I'm thankful for.

I love the comment about "my buttons get harder to push as long as I don't keep them lubricated." I'm also going to try to put it into practice. :-)
