We're all in this together


... and you thought Earth was a BIG round ball!


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I began my leg workouts yesterday, beginning very slowly, methodically and cautiously

thta my resting BP is 120/80 and heartrate is 74; not bad for a guy who smokes 2+ packs/day for 35 years

that my gym opens at 5am -- I was there at 5:02 this morning (these initial workouts are very short)

for a nice meeting with my sponsor; we both agree that I am a very very sick person

for a meeting that reminded me that we are all emotionally ill and should be tolerant of everyone, including ourselves OR, as a friend puts it ...
"We're all here because we're not all here."

to meet a interesting visitor at Lambda Center from Atlanta who gets his exercise by square dancing across America

that my home gets cleaned professionally today

that I never contracted malaria when I lived all over Africa; many of my friends did

that Pluto is no longer a planet; this has been bothering me a lot since I got sober

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

For one moment I thought that was a HNT picture and if it was it would be awesome. You have given me some ideas with that picture.

As always your grateful list inspires me. My only problem is with the "professional" cleaning. Send them my way.
Please.
I see you,
JJ

RE: for a nice meeting with my sponsor; we both agree that I am a very very sick person. I could have saved you the trouble.

My tired brain read..."my gym opens at 5:00 am, I left at 5:02. These initial workouts are very short.
After having hot coffee spurt through my nostrils (ouch) I read it again and sighed.
