Doing the Sober Thang

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for all the doctors, therapists and nurses (and others) who have worked so hard for my Mom's best interests these past 4 months

that Mom has received all the formal therapy she will get

that we have a plan in place for her future, limited as it may be

for my HP who keeps me strong, for my Mom

for my newest sponsee, who is beginning to shine, despite life's difficulties

that, in leading the 6:30am meeting today, the first 4 people I called on to share had a total of 107 years of continuous sobriety

for long-timers who go to AA meetings at 6:30am -- could there be a connection there?

that, according to Tradition 8, I am not being paid to carry the message

Following the course of least resistance makes for crooked rivers and crooked men.
