Listen to this...



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful


that I stay in the center of the herd


that even though I've had very little to share in meetings lately, I've been more than willing to listen (Hey! That's how I got sober!)

that I get to know me a bit more most days; this is imperative to my recovery

Hearing is one of the body's five senses. But listening is an art.

I have so realized how much listening heals.

hey, there's those marbles I lost in Houston back on that particular night we were tripping so hard... I've often wondered what happened to those after they all went bouncing and pinging down the driveway and into the street....

Listening is what I do best. I'm glad for that.

Love the quote. I'm glad I found you. I see from your last post that you are also working a program in Al-Anon. Best of luck to you. Al-Anon has worked miracles in my life.

I want not concur on it. I regard as polite post. Specially the appellation attracted me to read the intact story.
