Awareness

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the caring attitudes of the health professionals who take care of my Mom; I had a wonderful conversation with one of them yesterday

for a little more clarity each day on the extent of my powerlessness

that my existence is much more manageable now than it was during my first 49 years (I'm a little slow, sue me)

that I can often catch myself between that time of having a thought about reacting to a situation and actually over-reacting to it (file this under: new behavior)

that I don't have to beg, borrow or steal

for another reminder that any of my actions/behaviors can affect another human in ways I may not be able to imagine, making it my responsibility to always Do the Next Right Thing

that I have some extra furniture waiting for the right person(s)

that today is Sober Chick's one-year AA birthday

for the new weekly topic over @ Sobriety Society -- Procrastination -- please stop by and share, if you can find the time for it

Your mom is truly blessed to have a son like you. You are able to be present for her because of the path you walk today.

Funny dAAve! Thank you for my birthday wishes. I always love the way you shed humor on things. I don't have this gift, but when someone else does I am on the otehr end laughing away. Thank u for helping me laugh and being a part of my recovery. :)

Do the Next Right Thing,

I need to continue to remember that. As long as that next thing does not include a llama suit.

Thanks for sharing.
