Early to bed ...

All my life, I have habitually awoken about 5am-ish. Even during my drinking days. Sometimes earlier, but rarely much later than that. For some reason, I didn't get up until 5:45am this morning. It tends to really throw my "rountine" off, even those few minutes.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that by 6:40am today, I had been to Lambda twice! (my AA recovery center), asked to do service work by 2 other people and still retained a little bit of sanity

that my Mom is still alive and kicking although the downside is that she is becoming more miserable with her illness

that I have some integrity in my life

for Tradition 10 of Alcoholics Anonymous which pretty much keeps outside issues from the rooms of AA

for some tolerance of those who either are not aware of Tradition 10 or choose not to obey it

that my ingrown toenail should be repaired later this morning by a real Podiatrist
