Movin' on up ...
Since becoming sober, I now know that I've always been obsessive-compulsive.
I'm also anal-retentive.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for friends in recovery (new & old) who show me how to stay sober AND the reasons I should stay sober
for awareness, which leads to change, which leads to humility
that action, negative and positive, either gets me drunk or keeps me sober
for the email I received from a sponsee -- I neglected to give him a written assignment for our next meeting so he asked me what homework he should do. My reply - stay sober! (I have other discussion planned for that meeting, just nothing in writing)
that I dropped by Lambda Center at a time I am rarely, if ever there, and know almost everyone present (30+ people)
that I have yet to discover the return of insanity caused by a spiritual emptiness
for emergency instant coffee (ugh); my 10 year-old Mr Coffee coffeemaker bit the dust, so it's time for a new one
for the cease-fire in Lebanon, albeit a temporary one
To admit you were wrong is to declare you are wiser now than before.
