A Good Day to Be ...

Edinburgh Castle

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that sobriety is daily; recovery can last a lifetime

that I picked up on a concept of spirituality early in my exposure to AA (well, it took 3 months, but considering I was 49, that was pretty fast for this lifetime non-believer)

with some pushing from my other half, I can become more flexible in my day-to-day behavior; this is NOT something I want to do by myself

that I rarely end sentences with a proposition

that the elections will be over in only 11 months (arghhhhhhhhhh!)

What I am doing today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

What a great qoute. I seem to be stuck in feeling sorry for poor ol' me so what am I doing? Wasting a day of my life as such. Ouch.

Thank you for sharing.

I liked the proposition statement. Did you know that the "proposition" at the end gave rise to one of the best puns in the history of journalism? In prison for his part in the infamous Loeb and Leopold murder case, Richard Loeb was murdered by another prisoner after having allegedly made sexual advances on him. The Chicago Daily News reported the incident as follows: "Richard Loeb, despite his erudition, today ended his sentence with a proposition."
