Growth continues ...



Stevie Wonder Cat
todAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I was present to watch 39 people in recovery celebrate their AA birthdays Saturday Night; they had a combined total of 484 years of sobriety

that I woke up sober, happy and excited today

that Hayden arrives this afternoon for a 25-day visit

that I could create some small paintings for the Roundup Auction;

for Saturday morning breakfast with the ghurls

thta I had the pleasure of chairing a small meeting (3 guys) who had less than a month of sobriety between them; their eagerness was infectious

for a phone call from a Bronco fan (bless her heart)

that lex-sunshine posted a few days ago; this is great!

Don't let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.

"My Creator, I am now willing that you should have all of me, good and bad. I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my fellows. Grant me strength, as I go out from here, to do your bidding."
