Courage

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that today is my Mom's 83rd birthday; not quite the way we would have wanted to celebrate it, but at least she's still around

that I was able to exercise patience yesterday when the furniture movers I was waiting on were very late

that It Works When I Work It

for the importance of the Twelve Steps in my life today

for the Courage to Change (the things I can)

that I have so much on my plate right now, but can only eat one bite at a time

that I could find a little more work for Beth, my painter, to do

SURE I HAD A DRINKING PROBLEM, BUT I LOOKED AT IT MORE AS A DRINKING OPPURTUNITY.

Glad you got to spend another year with your mom. Hope there are more happy ones ahead.
And just What works when you work it? That sounds SOOOO sleazy! (Just kidding... I've read your blog long enough to know what you are talking about. Thanks for that.)
