a waste of good glass



todAAy i AAM grAAteful & thAAnkful

to be objective, at least where others are concerned

that my personal definition of humility has changed from meaning to be modest to being teachable

for the joy of in-depth discussion of Step 1 with a new sponsee

that my life has taken so many turns, I don't think I'll ever be straight!

I think being teachable is a great thing. And I hope that you stay with the twists and turns rather than taking the straight road.

I like your thoughts on humility.

You are a smarty pants (re:comment on my blog). I like that in a person.

Ah, yes, part of the wreckage of my past. I'd recognize it anywhere.

AHA...it objective, not objectionable. I get it! Funny how the meaning of words seem to change when our perspective changes. Who would have ever thought that humility was something we would strive for!
