todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for a good Step 6 meeting yesterday; Step 6 provides a recovering alcoholic a chance to begin the long, slow process of changing old behaviour
for the constant reminders of the cost of not practicing these principles in all my affairs
that I am sometimes reminded that non-alcoholics just cannot understand or comprehend that we, as alcoholics-in-recovery, absolutely must change our thinking patterns if we are to remain sober
that, this morning, our 6:30am Eyes Wide Shut AA Group finished reading the Big Book (front-to-back) -- for the second time in 2 years and 7 months. We read several pages each Tuesday morning and discuss what we've read.
that I called my old boyfriend in Florida yesterday as it was the 29th anniversary of our meeting - 7-17-77. He's been HIV/AIDS for 21 years and is healthy as a horse. Almost every one of our group of friends (20+ guys) from those days is dead.
that my domestic house-cleaner is making steady progress
Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better.
