Moving Forward

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAankful

that Mom is so accepting of her situation AND is able to just let go of her home of the past 43 years

to have her seemingly complete trust in handling all her affairs

that my sister and I were able to salvage most of Mom's most valued belongings before they were stolen

to hear the short story in an AA meeting of a young man, new in sobriety, and how staying clean and sober has already changed his life as an airline pilot

for dinner with my sponsor - a very very rare occurence

that I can get so much accomplished every day, especially after 9am, which used to be my cut-off time so I could begin the drinking day

for all the hAAlf-nAAked thursdAAy bloggers posting pictues todAAy

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
-Mohandas Gandhi
