Thoughts ...

my travel pics >>>>

The Balmoral Hotel
Edinburgh, Scotland

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that we read the story of the 3rd member of AA yesterday

that the history of Alcoholics Anonymous has been in my face the past few days, especially after seeing a presentation (upclose) by Gail L., of Akron, the AA archivist

that my friend Scott W chaired his final meeting in November yesterday on the topic of Humility

that one of my bestest friends (Rodney) realized a dream yesterday, all because he's sober and participating in life

that we have a new topic on Sobriety Society, drop by and give some input

that Hayden and I get to spend Christmas and New Year's together; the only other time we did, in 2002, I was too drunk to remember any of it

When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food, and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself.
-Tecumseh, Shawnee Chief

I love the story of the third A.A. Nothing like a drunken lawyer. I am glad for you and Hayden too.
