moderation (n) -- within reasonable limits; not excessive or extreme
I had to look up the meaning of that word in the dictionary because I certainly don't have a clue what it's about. People. Places. Things. Rarely in my life have I done anything in moderation that I enjoy.
Example: I have been blogging for 18 months, or about 540 days. This is my 1000th post.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for meeting up with my sister at Mom's nursing home yesterday
that Mom seemed attentive again, for the second time in a row
that we'll finish moving the furniture out of her home tomorrow
for the things I learn about AA through my service as a GSR
that what and who I am today is what remains after 52 years of experiences
for all the things I take for granted
that today, I have reasons, not excuses
I trust that everything happens for a reason, even when we're not wise enough to see it.
