Progress

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that Mom was in somewhat better spirits yesterday

that she walked for about 10 minutes before having to sit and rest

for an honest and humbling tale yesterday at the noon AA speaker meeting

for little steps along this lengthy journey

for breakfast with my sponsor

for foot-long chili/cheese dogs at Barnaby's that go straight to the heart (lunch, not breakfast)

that I have never been stupid enough to run from the police - there were over 400 police chases in Houston last year

When I hear somebody sigh, 'Life is hard,' I am always tempted to ask, 'Compared to what?'

I'm glad you're smart enough not to run from the police too! I recently had the difference between 'arrested' and 'severely arrested' explained to me. You don't want to be severely arrested. Ever. Happy HNT!!!

I used to think that life is hard. But it seems to get better and better the longer I stay sober.

Hmmm, with every action there is consequence (good consequence or bad consequence). Hmmm, foot-long CHILI cheese huh. Good Luck!
