Wishes & Witches

I may not have everything I want, but today I have everything I need. I will look for evidence of abundance and let it remind me that my Higher Power's love is broad enough to touch all who have the courage to place themselves in its presence.
COURAGE to CHANGE, page 301

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I didn't purchase the vehicle I was considering; a good friend bought it instead

for the abundance of choices I have as a sober member of society

for a really good meeting about character defects; I really need these constant reminders

that the day is not likely to come when I would trade my problems for your problems

that my first 17 days without a cigarette have been without incident

for an upcoming weekend with plenty of things to do and an abundance of things not to do

that it's Spring Forward, Fall Back weekend

The Washington Bullets are changing their name. They don't want their team to be associated with crime. From now on, they'll just be known as the Bullets.

You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it.

I don't think there is any danger of you losing that "spark of madness" and that is good!

OMIGOSH!!! I actually laughed out loud. That has to be the funniest pic EVAH (at least of a jack-o-lantern!).

And, dAAve, I don't think you need to worry too much about losing your spark of madness. Thanks so much for sharing it with all of us!

So glad I found you today. Needed the laugh, although as an Al-Anon I think why would anyone live their life like that? Also, thanks for letting me know that we get an extra hour this weekend! Woo hoo! Will make that Halloween dance tomorrow night that much more fun!!

You have no danger of losing your spark of madness, dAAve. And I, for one, am grateful for that. You add a great deal to my life and recovery with all of you various forms of "madness."
About the music mute button...I'm not computer savy enough to figure out how to get that thing on their without it having to play automatically -- or maybe it's not even possible. Anyway, it should roll off the page in a day or so. Sorry....I listen to other stuff when I'm blogging, too, so I feel ya.

Good for you on the incident free time for not smoking. That is definitely a gift. I've heard others of our type talk about how the desire to smoke just left them very similar to the desire for drink.

Love the Robin Williams quote.
