todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that my yesterday morning did not go as I had it planned; instead, it was better
for Step 3 and the infinite ways it has changed my life
that I got involved in 2 twelfth step calls yesterday (a rather rare thing for me)
for up-close and vivid reminders of the disease of alcoholism and how cunning, baffling and powerful it is. A good friend decided to end his life yesterday. We had talked just a couple of days ago and he seemed ok. Another friend slipped (again) after 4+ years of being clean and sober. I hope she makes it back (again). Those dice can only be rolled so many times for many of us.
