All Hallowed Gratitude
Motor vehicle wrecks are the leading cause of death in the United States for persons under age 34, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Morbidity and Mortality Reports.
Of those deaths, more than 40 percent are alcohol-related.
Alcohol-related accidents are so prevalent, it is estimated that 40 percent of all persons in the United States will be involved in a traffic mishap blamed on alcohol at some point in their lives. Forty percent!
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
tha my Mom has hung in there for a year after her major stroke -- today begins year 2
for a really good 9th step meeting yesterday and all the reminders of how my life changed soooooo much once I had completed my amends
for my daily chat with Hayden; he knows how my mind works. And doesn't work.
that my photographic memory never developed
that I have actually gotten caught up on just about everything going on in my life -- there is still daily material and items to handle, but it's manageable
for the Step 1 discussion at SOBRIETY SOCIETY
that I didn't dye the first time I had a gray hair
that we can welcome Ben to the cyberworldrecoveryblogosphere -- he calls it Dragon Speak -- another Houston blogger!!
that my 2006 calendar's days are numbered
Today, instead of seeking relief from fear by trying to do battle with it, I will turn to my Higher Power.
