Good morning...

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that as my recovery grows, my dependence on others for my serenity, lessens

that I'm still learning how to live with another person; I guess this will always be part of my life?

that after reading ALKYSELTZER'S blog, I called my sponsor to let him know I was out of the country

that I strive for a laid-back, no-drama life
(well, it's a nice thought)

that I attended Hayden's university graduation Saturday. Some very good speakers (professors and valedictorian's). One of the graduates who spoke told of his gratitude to be sober the past 9 years after a 20-year addiction to drugs. His family attended the ceremony and were cheering him on with glee, understandably.

that I had a battery of physical exam-type tests run here in Trinidad because it's a whole lot less expensive and the doctors are just as good as in Houston; apparently, I'm still kinda healthy. The lobotomy has been postponed.

*** The picture is one I took last year in Hayden's Mom's front yard. That is not me in the picture!

You are looking quite tan in that photo, although maybe a little hung over.
