I can stay sober -- today

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I had no reason nor temptation to drink yesterday and I can't imagine what might cause me to think otherwise today

for those who are able to return to the rooms of AA after a relapse

that This Too Shall Pass works in so many areas of my life, almost daily

that my sister will visit our new home this morning for the first time

I'm hoping for a video tour of the new digs. And I hear you on the future--I'm happy for what this day offers.

Daave "I Can Stay Sober--Today", the title of your blog today, reminds me of the old sponsor his pigeon to repeat to himself repeatedly:

"I cannot drink, I cannot drink, I cannot drink, I cannot drink, I cannot drink."

Until one day the pigeon will declare, "Hey, I found out that I CAN!.............NOT DRINK!

Beautiful program; beautiful, forgiving family
