todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that Mom's Memorial Service went smoothly yesterday
for all the Lambda Center friends who showed up in support of this drunk
that I got to meet a few of Mom's church friends who actually made us a very nice lunch after the service
that my nephew was able to catch a last-minute flight from Barbados (where he is working) and attend his grandmothers' funeral
that I was able to step up to the podium and relate a few thoughts about Mom -- without crying!! I must have learned how to do this in A.A.
Happy 85th, Bob!
that I feel a little relief from the stress I've experienced these past 3 years
