thanks for dropping by



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I seem to have simplified Step 3 into one word -- whatever

that I can usually keep my mouth shut when someone shares in a meeting about what we need to do or what I should not do or how I feel or act instead of keeping it just about themself

for a wonderful sobriety birthday celebration at Lambda this past Saturday -- we celebrate a month's worth of birthdays in one night -- this month there were 32 people with a total of 314 sober years

for fellowship with others who think (almost) like me

Don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom.
- General George S. Patton

Eight one year celebrants! That was the best part! Other than you, of course.

Maybe you should not have kept your mouth shut... maybe.

I went to the Patton museum in Louisville, Ky..he is from there. He said a lot of good stuff, but I don't remember too much of it.

Sounds like a good birthday celebration. I also do my best to keep my mouth shut.

Now there is a lot of sobriety! Happy Birthday...again. In CT they call it an anniversary...even sing happy anniversary to the tune of happy b-day. I like to think we were reborn.

i can't stop laughing about this, "that I can usually keep my mouth shut when someone shares in a meeting about what we need to do or what I should not do or how I feel or act instead of keeping it just about themself".

amen brother, amen :)
