In Remembrance

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

that my Mom is out of the hospital and happy to be back in her familiar surroundings

for a new appreciation of the meaning of The Serenity Prayer and a greater understanding of the wisdom to know the difference

that my friend ZANE (ZaneJabber) yesterday celebrated his 16th anniversary of remaining clean and sober

that I am now an inexperienced skydiver with one jump under my belt; an interesting day certainly but not as exhilarating as I had imagined. More on this tomorrow.

"The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude."
~ William James

Early in sobriety I had that quote on my mirror. It served me well, so thanks for that reminder.

So glad to hear that your mom is out of the hospital.

I was compelled to drop by for some reason, and now I know that it was so I could learn good news about your mom. I'm glad she is back in familiar surroundings.

I await the skydiving story wif bated breff.
