Hanging in there


"Thirsty"


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have everything I need and more, although I usually don't think about this when it's all about dAAve

for tangible proof that my perception is often that I never have enough

for my extracurricular AA committments - this weekend, I had a District/GSR meeting at which I made a short presentation, a Lambda Center fundraising organization meeting and a Lambda Center Board of Directors meeting. I not only enjoy doing these things, but need them to help fill out my life.

for the current topic on SOBRIETY SOCIETY; please drop by and read/leave a comment

that Hayden loves me in spite of my thinking and sticks with me in spite of my behavior

that we're not joined at the hip (or any other body part)

that I am going to see a doctor about some apparent nerve damage in my neck/shoulder/arm

nerve damage? could that have happened when you drummed up all that nerve to get in a rubber dingy with a bunch of guys and paddle down a violent rapid?
just ask'in? lol
it was worth the pics anyways!

well..Hayden loves you I am sure for the many reasons most of us enjoy reading your blog.You are not afraid to grow and be humbled.
I am sure there is more to it but you get my drift.

Happy Tuesday Daave!
Did you know it is Sober Steve's 40th Birthday today? and that he is (hopefully) due to go into rehab sometime today? Just thought I'd remind y'all.
