music, smiles, traditions
I am a fan of calypso music, made famous in the USA by Harry Belafonte (click here). If you have time, watch some of his other performances highlighted on the right column of YouTube.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I get 3 doses of AA today; it's something I choose to do
that it's rarely painful to walk with a smile on my face
that the only requirement for membership in Alcoholics Anonymous is a desire to stop drinking (fortunately, it doesn't say for how long)
for the early experiences of sober members of AA and that they didn't give up
for a little better understanding that my episodes of intolerance are because of a fear I am experiencing
for the cool temperature brought to us this morning with a powerful weather front
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.
