The Happy Couple
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that when I woke up this morning, I was the me I am getting to know. I prayed to my HP for guidance to do His will instead of mine (which is my instinct).
for the WE of the program of A.A. -- yesterday my brain was acting up on me and the insanity would not stop. I was making assumptions because of misguided perceptions that had nothing to do with any reality and as each minute passed, it got worse. I prayed to my HP to please help me, to please make it stop! Within seconds, a friend in recovery who had just returned after a relapse asked to talk with me. After speaking with him for about 10 minutes, he asked me to sponsor him and help him with the steps. From that moment, my own insanity took a back seat to his. My HP works in mysterious and somewhat unpredictable ways. The remainder of the day flew by as usual.
that I can make phone calls these days to admit when I'm nutty and remain accountable to others and myself
that I treated myself to an hour-and-a-half-long massage
for the power and sensibility in this reading (you may have seen it already, but for most of us, it's worth reading repeatedly)
Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.
