todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I can say NO and not feel guilty about it

that I no longer waste my time in sordid places; I have found other venues in which to waste my time

that I am pretty flexible to change when necessary

that I watched games 6 & 7 of the National League Championship Series (for the NL pennant). They were both well played games with tons of strategy. St Louis beat New York and goes on to the World Series.

that this blog, and these posts of gratitude, have become an integral part of my sober days at this point in time

for today's lesson in acceptance for me ... someone changed the font, font size, and font color on the HNT site. Shouldn't this require a group conscience?
Acceptance is the key and I'd rather be Happy ... than right.
But most of all -- if this is the worst thing that happens in my day today, it's going to be a very successful day.

The man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
-Muhammad Ali



I will have to check out the HNT blog now. Have a good weekend dAAve.
I see you,

Hey, where do you get one of those inflatable legs? Good job with acceptance.

LOL! LOVE the pic!

And sordid places? Yeah, best to stay outta those danged Circle K's. I don't think that the stuff they claim to be coffee is actually a substance originally from this planet.

To whom are you saying no?

I noticed that font change yesterday.

There is strategy in baseball? Who knew.

Mary Christine said...

How can someone change the format of HNT? Weird.

I actually watched three of those baseball games.. something I haven't done since I was in my early 20s.

Shannon said...

I will too... I know I made differnt colors in my post, but that shouldnt change everything should it? no... I agree daave it should be a group thing...

Your lists remind all of us to think about our own lists in day to day life Daave
I just posted today about how much my blogging means to me right now.
It really is a powerful connection with others who care to live well and help out others where they can.
That is what I think people like about you really care.
You share.And your funny as heck.

Thanks for sharing :O)
