A Spoonful of Gratitude
I suppose I might have used this photo on hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy, but since I am not included in the picture ...
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for a 6:30am meeting about Honesty and a noon meeting on Step 3 yesterday -- a great pair of topics for a Monday (and the other 6 days too)
for lunch (chicken-fried steak, of course) with my sponsor and about 7 other recovering persons
that I now have operational Christmas lights after hiring an electrician to determine that nothing was wrong except for a faulty light bulb -- I mentioned already that my thinking has been on the stupid side lately? At least I had some other work he could do whilst here.
that Jonathan (my life in tampa) celebrated his 100th sober day AND has now started painting (I relate to this)
that I ran across Mary Poppins while channel surfing last night -- and watched it!
I was 10 years old when the movie premiered in 1964 -- an age of innocence. I must have seen it a dozen times; my uncle was a film projectionist at a drive-in theatre. I do believe that it's been 40 years! since I last viewed it, although it had to share my viewing eyes with Marche de l'empereur, La (March of the Penguins) last night.
If I won't be myself, who will?
