In 500 Words or Less

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that Mom seems to be as comfortable as possible in her new home

that I can cut down on my Mom visitation schedule and not feel guilty about it

for my mentors in recovery; a few people who have taught me to Keep Coming Back, Don't Give Up 5 Minutes Before the Miracle, Pause When Agitated, Restraint of Pen and Tongue but most of all, show me the importance of a Higher Power in my life

that I don't seem to have blackouts any longer; they may have been associated with my drinking

that I haven't climbed a fence once since I stopped drinking, nor fallen off one

that I learned early in life that the best way to learn something is to teach it

for my lateral filing cabinet; both drawers are nearly full --- arghhhh!

for Houston weather (most of the time)

that tomorrow is hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy

that Alexis may show up at Lambda before too much longer; ie: on 3/18 for our fundraiser or 3/25 on Birthday Night

I WAS BORN AN ALCOHOLIC.
WHEN I CAME OUT OF THE WOMB, I WAS YEARNING FOR THE GOOD OLD DAYS.

It's wonderful to hear that your mother continues to thrive. Will u now be able to attend our Friday morning meeting? Selfish, aren't I? Queen Noor

I am sure you can still climb a fence and there would be noone chasing you. It's a good idea to keep in practice. Never know when Cheney may come hunting.

I've got bday night on my calendar! I heard the last one was wonderful. Not to be completely superfiscial, but my sponsee (who was at Feb. Bday) said there were just TONS of beautiful people there and the clothes and shoes were just to die for. She also said the celebrants were SO full of hope and joy. I look forward to it!
