todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I saw a teenie, weenie bit of improvement in my Mom's physical condition yesterday - for the first time since her stroke last October - she actually tried to speak a word (for the first time) AND she tried to swallow (again, for the first time)
that my choice to have a good attitude yesterday - worked! all day long!!
for a great AA meeting yesterday at 6:30am - the topic ... Sex in Sobriety (this is a big deal for a bunch of gay guys early in sobriety)
that by practicing Steps 6 and 7 constantly and consistently, there is a ray of hope
that I didn't give up 5 minutes before the miracle
that I found it easy to become as passionate about my recovery as I did with my drinking
for a historic baseball game last night - Astros vs Cubs - the historic part is that there were 2 starting pitchers, each with over 300 lifetime wins pitching; this was the first time this has happened since 1911 (can anyone tell me who the pitchers were last night?)
that I have a friend who can assemble desks and put up shelves using a drill and a screwdriver
People may fail many times, but they become failures only when they begin to blame someone else.
