todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for small AA meetings -- by small, I mean 4 or 5 people, maybe 8 or 10. The morning meeting I attend is one of those. Yesterday, we began with just 3 at 6:30am. There were 2 stragglers, so by 6:50am there were 5 of us. One of those was a visitor from out of town who arrived the previous night and needed a meeting. It was his first time in Houston and he found us on the internet. We discussed "having a conscience in sobriety" and the discussion went strong until we broke at 7:30am. Great stuff!!

that I got to hear the superb presentation of the AA story of a person two years into her recovery

that I'm returning this morning for my first full workout with my new trainer, who just happens to be quite pleasing on the eyes

Man, that cake looks good. Your 6:30 meetings sounds wonderful, of course, now I have been there, so I can really imagine it!

Hi Daave...I wish I could share my birthday with lots of folks! But I'm only going to celebrate once this year at my Monday Night Womens meeting. I am however, thinking about coming to the Ms. Lambda thing, on I think ...June 16th.
