Recovery stuff




"Dandy Lions"



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I made it through another 24 hours without alcohol although I still have many shortcomings and character flaws to take up the slack

that the battles we pick often determine who wins the war

for all the stuff in my recovery tool box -- it works when I use it

for the wisdom gained from the experience of those who came before me

for this lovely Chamber of Commerce weather we're having in Houston this week

~ (NOTE) Yesterday I mentioned I have some nerve irritation in my neck/shoulder/arm -- it is due to stress - it's not an injury (just thought I'd clear that up)

"I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends."
-- Abraham Lincoln

Dandy Lion was my fave book as a kid. When I read it to Sam he was underwhelmed.
