H. O. W.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the necessity of Honesty, Open-mindedness and Willingness of the AA program

that I can't intentionally deceive you or me nor can I outright lie because I vigorously try to avoid having to make amends

that I can listen and hear

that I can do

that I came to believe

that I'm able, more often, to apply Rule #62 (it's in Tradition 4 in case you are wondering)

for a visitor from Los Angeles at our 6:30am meeting today; he shared that wherever he goes in the world, AA meetings are pretty much the same, even our little group

for the 2 HNT pix I posted today (scroll down)

that I'll be taking my 54-year old sister to a birthday lunch today (I'm sooooo much younger than she); I'm a day late but not a dollar short

There has never been an age that did not applaud the past and lament the present.

believe in what?
Just kidding


It took everything I had not to pick up the phone and call the ex every name in the book but that was only because I really did not want to have to go back and make amends.
I see you and a great grateful list as always.
