Focus



After flipping his speedboat, Jesus quickly leaves the scene before his father finds out.




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I don't feel too guilty lately when asked to share in a meeting and don't have anything much to say. I can sometimes beat myself up for having nothing to add to a meeting, when asked.

for a book called Alcoholics Anonymous. We read it this morning at the 6:30am meeting I attend as we do every Tuesday. Then we discuss what we read. My constant and consistent exposure to this book is a part of my recovery from alcoholic drinking.

that the good old days are a thing of my history

that I will be doing my best (I hope) to focus on my emotional sobriety this year

that Pam showed us a way to block IP addresses, which in turn has allowed me to cancel the comment moderation gadget. If you are interested, scroll all the way to the bottom of my blog and click on the icon.


Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.

I'll bet that you are asked to share in meetings because you have something that people want.

It's probably the cats. Or the hot tub.

Sometimes my shares are really short. I sit there ahead of time and know I have plenty to share, but when I get called upon I end up just keeping it short.

Interesting. I'll have to look into that. As always, thanks for my morning laugh. What a pic.

I like short shares. No need to be a wind bag.

IP address blocking is cool. Thanks.

Great picture! Do you think Jesus used Photoshop to do that scene?

Dave, THNK YOU SO MUCH! I'm talking about my request yesterday for jokes, and you sent me a truckload. That's ACTION! That's true AA friendship in a cyber way...

I am so grateful to know people like you in this small community. Thanks!

Hope blocking the address works. I'd hate to see that idiot back.

I got an email of all the sinner blogs, and I was on their TWICE. So there!
I would not put my faith 100% in the IP blocking. Just got to change computers, 'ya know what I mean...
