todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that my sister and I met up at Mom's place and got to enjoy each other's company over a late lunch
for Chicken Fried Steak
that I got to see some good friends receive AA birthday medallions Saturday night
that when I was ready to jump off the tightrope of insanity, there was a net in place
that I can steal quotes from A&E's Intervention
for remembering the days of shaking so much I could not write until I had 2 or 3 beers down; when I had to write checks to pay bills, I had to write them in the morning before I got too fucked up, so I would drink those beers just so I could write. Then I would get nothing done the rest of the day because I would just keep drinking.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
-Thomas A. Edison
