I am grateful that a drunk like me was fortunate enough to live until I arrived in Alcoholics Anonymous.

... so simple, so true
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that my wandering mind has returned to a decent neighborhood
for loyalty to the people I love and the things in which I believe
for the years I worked offshore where I learned a lot of life's lessons
for a reminder that no matter what city or what country I am in, my alcoholism follows
for lunch yesterday at Lankford's (voted the best burger in Houston) with 5 other hungry alkies
that my cats still put up with me
that I've never been a good poker player, thus avoiding another obsession/addiction
Life consists not in holding good cards, but in playing those you hold well.
