another moose








todAAy i AAM grAAteful & thAAnkful

for Dr. Bob's Nightmare in the Big Book (Alcoholics Anonymous, pages 171-181)

for this passage from the above story ...
"I spend a great deal of time passing on what I learned to others who want and need it badly. I do it for four reasons:

  • Sense of duty.

  • It is a pleasure.

  • Because in so doing am paying my debt to the man who took time to pass it on to me.

  • Because every time I do it I take out a little more insurance for myself against a possible slip.
for continued health; I'm still on the treadmill 5 or 6 days each week and work with my trainer twice every week

that I seem to learn more about myself every day, like it or not

Every time we open our mouths, men look into our minds.

Well, maybe men look into our minds when we sit at the keyboard too.

Scary thought - that mouth-mind connection...

Taking care of ourselves involves not only the physical but the emotional and spiritual. I'm glad that I understand that all 3 are important.
