todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that my Mom keeps trying to communicate through her writing, regardless of the difficulty
to see, and hear, a lot of determination from a number of friends, new in recovery
for honesty from others which helps keep me honest
for all the compassion for a friend who relapsed, but returned quickly
for the opportunity to hear some of the experiences of my sponsor at an AA speaker meeting
that my friend Justin will be in town next week
for progress on my rear patio as it becomes my own personal rain forest
that TS Alberto didn't do too much damage
that The Astros have won 7 of their last 8 games
Friends are like melons.
Shall I tell you why?
To find a good one,
you must a hundred try.
