for a nice visit with Mom at the nursing home
for a thought I had while there -- that today, I will stop by her home of 43 years on my way to the sale/closing of said home and go inside. Then I will say a prayer thanking God for all of the memories our family has taken from that
for a great meeting yesterday with my sponsor; possibly the most productive time we've had together since we finished working the steps almost 2 years ago
that I have decided to do some travelling over the next few months; probably to NYC and London; after almost non-stop international and some domestic travel (living in hotels for most of 15 years) I have not been anywhere since getting sober 3 years ago
that I have 3 sponsee's who are working on steps 1, 4 and 11 which really keeps me connected
for the large number of people in the AA meetings I've attended the past several days who are back from relapses
for another thought I had (this could be a dangerous trend) -- Apparently, humans are not perfect. Learning how to live with the imperfections around us while dealing with the defects within us are what life is all about.
More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren't so busy denying them.
