First, we try living in the now just in order to stay sober -- and it works. Once the idea has become a part of our thinking, we find that living life in 24-hour segments is an effective and satisfying way to handle many other matters as well.
DAILY REFLECTIONS, page 169
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I don't need to explain or provide a caption to the picture
that I was able to have my Mom's sore mouth looked after and treated successfully (it's only a challenge because she cannot communicate what she is feeling)
that one of my best friends in recovery is facing some potential serious health problems with Courage and Grace (while not over-reacting like the Queen that he really is - LOL)
that I have lived long enough to have many retired friends
that we have our last scheduled Roundup Committee meeting on Sunday
for long Yahoo! chats with Hayden
that X-Files is on during the wee morning hours
Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better.
