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.
- Oprah Winfrey



Happy 1,000th post!
You rock!
I see you,

Happy 1000th Post!!! I'm grateful for EVERY one of them. I look forward to reading you every morning. What if I popped over here one day and you hadn't posted??? It would be like going to the coffee pot and having nothing there. I would make it, but the day wouldn't be the same. I'm SO glad you haven't done this in moderation. I love to read about your thoughts and experiences. Thank you for all 1000 posts!
