Hump Day (no photographs)

Those of us who have come to make regular use of prayer would no more do without it than we would refuse air, food, or sunshine. And for the same reason. When we refuse air, light, or food, the body suffers. And when we turn away from meditation and prayer, we likewise deprive our minds, our emotions, and our intuitions of vitally needed support.
TWELVE STEPS and TWELVE TRADITIONS, page 97

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the reminders being thrown in my face this week

that Scott chaired a meeting about surrender - amongst many other things

that keeping a good attitude and being nice to a stranger can reap many rewards

for planning, preparation and presentation (see above & below)

that I completed a major hurdle towards getting a certain someone accepted into a College program

for gains and losses in the elections yesterday

Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.

{{goosebumps and warm smiles when I read about a certain someone and college:)}}Keep us posted on that!

I love that Twelve Step tradition message.I honestly believe some people are just condtioned to think that if the even mumble the word
"god" they are a hardcore religious fanatic!Some people just do not understand prayer and meditation as a natural born right to embrace how ever each of feels fit.My morning has coffee ,reading and medition before breakfast..it is all important..yeppers...I love that
..thank you Daave:)
