Take a Moment, please
Scott and I are back from New York City.
We took a boat tour around Manhattan Island.
This picture is taken from that boat. I'll post some other pix of our trip beginning tomorrow.
Today, however, is
Enjoy it! With family, friends or even by yourself.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for the freedoms given to us by our forefathers
for the continuing freedoms we all enjoy and mostly take for granted
that Scott and I had a great 4 days in NYC and made it back safely, sober and sane
that we accomplished everything we planned to do and more!
for the many people we met both in and out of the rooms of AA (more posts about the trip to follow this week)
that we went to meetings each day (except yesterday) in different locations; they were all different but in a very comfortable way, they were all the same as every meeting I've ever attended
that, with this trip out of town, I intentionally stopped 2 personal longevity records (1) my streak of going to an AA meeting every day stopped yesterday at 1,010 days (2) my personal "blog every day" streak ended Saturday at 569 days --- this is actually a big deal for this very anal-retentive, obsessive-compulsive nutcase
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
