Fellowship





todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the benefits of not being alone anymore -- those days of sitting alone on a barstool are my history, but don't have to be part of my future

that I have more friends than I'm willing to acknowledge -- for example, I have over 200 Facebook "friends", most of whom are in recovery

for the drama that I won't create today - hopefully

that I've been taking myself much too seriously and need to remember Rule 62 (see Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, page 149)

that a few of us went to the baseball game last night -- fellowship!!

I am glad it's morning because that photo might give me nightmares.

I love telling new folks about Rule 62. I act all serious about having them find it in the 12x12. It's a good way to get newcomers into the Traditions.

HEY! I know Rule #62..."Don't Talk To Yourself" Right? -grin!!!

And Rule #62(a) "If you Talk To Yourself, DO NOT LISTEN!"

I think that I break Rule #62 some days. I don't want to be so serious but some of this shit is stuff that is serious, right?

I bet I know one person that didn't go to the game.

What are you going to name your new pet?
