A sign on the wall in the Men's restroom on the ferry (see yesterday's post) that runs between Trinidad and Tobago.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I never need to "arrange" my daily activities around my drinking again
to see people return to the rooms of recovery quicky after slipping / relapsing -- I don't know if I could do that and I hope I never test myself on this point
that I can introduce you to a new blogger from Houston (although he lives in North Texas now). Drop by and say howdy to Rebos Reed and help him remain grateful. We got sober within weeks of each other in 2003 at Lambda Center even though he's 31 years younger than me.
for time spent with Rodney yesterday - we took a 3-hour road trip to the Gulf coast and had some quality chat-time together
for my life. Last night I was missing Hayden being here with me. And I was taking a break from some voluntary computer work (for Lambda Center) and reading recovery blogs and also watching the Astros on TV when I ventured to my stylish 2nd-story front balcony. There was a young-ish homeless guy rummaging through the garbage bin across the street, probably looking for food scraps. All of a sudden, I felt very grateful.
