Nothing Negative

This is the only concrete Ping Pong Table I have ever seen.
It is on the grounds of the Tobago Hilton Hotel, about 50 yards from the surf of the Caribbean Sea.
Even the net is concrete. Personally, I thought it was a bit windy to be playing, but I'm kinda particular that way.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I get to witness the new-found sobriety of so many people and then watch as they grow in recovery

that I am pretty damn content when I am not thinking of the things I want to have

that I got to speak to Mary Christine yesterday

for a quick and peaceful Board meeting Sunday at Lambda Center

that I am so blessed - there's really nothing negative in my life except those things that my perceptions tell me are negative; or put another way, those things that I make up

that The Astros begin their 46th annual campaign to win a World Series - today!

Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth, or the only truth.
-Charles A. Dana

Life sounds good, dAAve. I loved hearing about the coral reef dive. I did one last year in Turks and Caicos and it was amazing.

Whoa...a quick and peaceful board meeting at ANY AA just....well...unheard of!
Glad you made it home safely.
Jealous you got to talk to Mary Christine :)

Mary Christine said...

It was great to talk with you.... and I agree that a quick and peaceful board meeting at an AA Club has to be a first.
