todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
we read "Empty on the Inside", an AA story in the 4th edition of the Big Book. I really identify with the author when she writes about never acquiring social and conversational skills. I still don't know how to have a conversation with someone I don't know. I'm afraid to.
for the people who made me feel welcome to the rooms of AA when I first started going to meetings
for a first -- all 3 of my current sponsees were at the same meeting as I
(that was weird because they all have very different schedules)
that I have not been to my favorite watering hole since June 2004 (I wuz 9 months sober)
that I do my best to show respect for others; I see a lot of disrespect and it's very ugly
He deserves paradise who can make his companions laugh.
- The Qur'an
