Friday Gratitude

"When I joined A.A., I did so for the sole purpose of getting sober and staying sober. I didn't realize I would find so much more, but a new and different outlook on life started opening up almost immediately. Each day seems to be so much more productive and satisfying. I get so much more enjoyment out of living . I find an inner pleasure in simple things. Living just for today is a pleasant adventure.
Above all, I am grateful to A.A. for my sobriety, which means so much to my family, friends, and business associates, because God and A.A. were able to do for me something I was unable to do for myself."
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, 4th edition, page 358

todAAy iAAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that Mom's appointment with her new opthamologist went well with no unexpected surprises regarding her eyesight

for the pleasant drive to Tomball from Montrose (central Houston) at 8 o'clock in the morning

that my family is reaping the consequences of having a sober dAAve

that I got to a 12:15pm meeting at 12:15pm, which to me, is late

for completing more projects yesterday afternoon; I'm on a roll this week (just like butter)

that Jane and Johno and Phil have posted again, drop by to welcome them back

Other people’s faults are like bees—if we don't see them, they don't harm us.

oooh I like that about other peoples thoughts... I am one of those, who I wish didnt, but I worry sometimes (more than I'd like to admit) but I worry about what other people think of me...
EGO... oh well still working on it, and I am better than I was, at least I can be honest with myself about it

At 1st I thought AA was gonna teach me how to drink agian. Then I thought it was gonna keep me sober. Little did I know I was 100% wrong.

I am glad to hear there were no surprises with you mom's eyesight. This allows me to have gratitude for my eye sight, that I can read recovery and see the things right in front of me.

Have a wonderful weekend!
