Bugs, Meetings and Forgiveness




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I'll get an extra dose of recovery medicine today

that I am able to attend the first meeting of the day, each day, at Lambda Center. I do this 7 days/week, almost without fail.

that we've had first-time newcomers 3 days-in-a-row at our noon meetings this week

for the grins and smiles I witness when folks look at my old '61 VW Bug. It seems that about everyone over 40 years-old has a Bug story.


The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

My high school girlfriend had a bug. We spent lots of time in her bug and in my Mustang. Those were the days...

I miss seeing you lately. Maybe at 10 today, but not sure.

I had a Bug, brand new, totaled it my first week after totaling my smaller 4-CV Renault. Loved both those cars, but our love was short-lived.

Forgiving--for me--has mostly been easy. It is that God-like FORGETTING where I run into trouble.
