todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that my little illness was just a 24-hour bug; I've sure had it a lot worse than this one
I'm short of time and will be away from home most of the day. So I shall leave you with this from the Big Book, Chapter 7, Working With Others...
"We are careful never to show intolerance or hatred of drinking as an institution. Experience shows that such an attitude is not helpful to anyone. Every new alcoholic looks for this spirit among us and is immenseldly relieved when he finds we are not witchburners. A spirit of intolerance might repel alcoholics whose lives could have been saved, had it not been for such stupidity."
The whole worth of a kind deed is in the love that inspires it.
