cat and mouse

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a lively noon AA meeting yesterday. Sometimes, personalities take control over principles, but I can just sit back and watch when I'm not in charge.

that most of my fears may never be removed, but they are mostly manageable

that I have a very comfortable home to spend my time in

that I'm not a fairweather baseball fan, nor a fairweather alcoholic-in-recovery. I work 'em both 24/7.

Create the kind of self you will be happy to live with all your life.

That cat looks like me with my kids sometimes. Have a great day dAAve.

Mary Christine said...

I am grateful for your lack of fairweatherness.

That meeting really was entertaining!


Steve E. said...

Maybe that's what I can learn today...sit back and watch, when I'm not in charge. I can be unfairweathered about that!

Syd said...

I like the idea of watching the egos blast off. It's like watching a train wreck. I'm glad that you have passion for your program and your baseball.
