the end of the tunnel




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my life has taken on a new meaning when I look at where I was 6 years ago, 3 years ago, 1 year ago and even last week

that I have frequent contact with newcomers

for a rather emotional AA meeting about which we spoke of the grief of losing so many friends to AIDS (yesterday was World Aids Day)

that no matter what happens in my life or to those I know, I don't need to drink over it

that I actually worked out twice yesterday at the gym -- at 8am and 5pm but the 2nd time I didn't last very long (but my best effort was there)

Fortune and love befriend the bold.

Perhaps a nice nap instead of a second work out?

Look out, y'all. Dave's gettin' healthy!

Or were you preparing for Hayden's return?

I am sure that must have been an emotional meeting. Glad that you are there for newcomers.
