The only requirement ...

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

to be a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, which is celebrating its 71st anniversary of helping alcoholics to recover from a deadly disease -- one day at a time for 25915 days

1010 days - that's how long I have gone without an alcoholic drink

for a pleasant visit with Mom and as I was walking out, my brother-in-law walked in

for the honor of listening to a 5th step -- "Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs"

for the people who gave of their time and efforts in the oppressive heat to wash cars for Lambda on Saturday

for the willing participants in the Roundup fundraiser on Saturday night

that Scott and I are making more plans for our visit to NYC

that JJ and her bestest friend BOB will meet us there along with Mr HK (hopefully) on Sunday, July 2 (let us know if you too can be there (in The Village??)

that I finally got around to making some needed cosmetic changes to my living room after 2+ years

Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
