This year is flying by ...

Hollywood welcomes The Beckhams

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a couple of days of winter weather; that's enough for most of us down here

that I don't use the rooms of AA to preach or to push my opinions on others NOR do I feel the need to alter the published words of AA so that they fit my agenda

to add another recovery blog to the list - drop by and visit Mary Anne at One Primary Purpose

for sharing some Experience, Strength and Hope over breakfast with another Dave

that we had our annual Homeowner's Association meeting last night without any harsh words or particularly nasty accusations -- I have learned to just keep my damn mouth closed!

I do not understand the mystery of grace--only that it meets us where we are, but does not leave us where it found us.
-Anne Lamott

Couldn't agree with you more.
Love love love the quote at the bottom. Stay warm today Mr. Dave.

I, who am usually up to date with pop culture, had no idea that Victoria Beckham (also referred to as FemBot) was once Posh Spice. Where have I been?

I have to agree with not altering the written words to fit my stuff. Nor do I feel the need to stand before a group to recite poetry.

Mary Christine said...

Eeesh. You just named some things that really bother me. Particularly "gender neutralizing" the steps.
I have heard Beckham referred to as "soccer spice".

I am a pop culture retard!

Like the POSH sign.

"NOR do I feel the need to alter the published words of AA so that they fit my agenda"

...do people do this?

Pam said...

Dave, just coming back by one more time...I can not get that quote out of my mind.


Sharing is caring...
and I love the pic.

Thanks for your comment. It helps to know that these feelings are just that, feelings I am just now learning to deal with.

You rock!

Hi Dave,

I agree with you on not using the rooms of AA for my own purpose.

Thanks for posting.

Ditto Trudging. Learning something new too, not to alter the written words to fit my stuff.

Thank you for sharing and me, from the lands of Malays, bring you a bunch of GREETING.
