Ownership

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I'm realizing more and more that God (as I understand Him) will always have His way; the more I resist His will, the more that I Do the Next Wrong Thing, the unhappier I will be

that I've done 180/90 for the past 12 calendar quarters (only recovery folk will understand this)

for the 31 AA July birthday celebrants Saturday Night @ Lambda Center - a wonderful night with good food and short speeches

that I'm planning another trip to NYC because my London excursion has to be postponed (Liz, Kenny, I'm waiting to hear from you about this)

that the wreckage of my past - is just that!

that I finally saw The Devil Wears Prada -- very enjoyable

for my 2 new leather recliners; my first new furniture in a decade

that I could donate my retired recliner to someone who appreciates it (cigarette burns and all); it provided a great place to pass out during my last 4 years of drinking

that my topic was chosen for SOBRIETY SOCIETY this week yea!!!!

The more you have, the more you're occupied; the less you have, the more free you are.

Wow! 180 in 90 is pretty impressive. Are you going to continue on this path?
