Calm and Serene

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I woke up sober this morning, drank some coffee, and am continuing to get through the morning without having a beer or a rum/coke

for a very good meeting yesterday with my Mom's nursing home administrator's

that short-term experiences can make for long-term wisdom

that I know that my wrong behaviour can affect another human enormously

that when I put any of my character defects into practice I greatly decrease my chances of serenity

that I've never been to St. Olaf North Korea

that I spoke to Hayden (my ex) last night about nothing in particular as he enjoys a couple of days in Tobago

The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.

Thanks for sharing your serenity! I'm going to borrow some! Whenever somebody tries to take my serenity away today, I'll just hang on to yours and stay calm : ) Have a great Friday!

You used a phone? I don't believe it. Next you'll be reading a book a week!

Isn't St. Olaf where the golden girl is from?

I love that quote! My best friend in the whole world moved to Houston 5 yrs ago. We have grown in different directions, but are closer than ever... Spiritual love transcends the physical, geographic constraints.
