no phoning it in

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I'm present in my life

for all the good things in my life, which is just about everything

that I have a program to handle life's difficulties and don't have to drink to escape them

that my index of maladjustments is there for me to practice daily if I don't remember to ask my HP to remove them

When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, a hundred.
- Thomas Jefferson

And I'm grateful to read both your blogs. I needed your "Sanguine" post last night Mary Christine and I needed to be reminded to count this morning Dave. Thank you both for sharing. When I NEED a meeting, no matter what time, I can get to one right here on my computer. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

"index of maladjustments"--I smiled at this Dave. I have quite a few that I might need to write about sometime.

10 is never a long enough count for me. 100, maybe. Thanks for the reminder to choose to take time to respond rather than react.

Thanks for the gratitude and the reminder that we have to be present and participate for all this to work. If we want potatoes, we gotta grab a hoe!

i loved the "index of maladjustments" too. it conjures up an image of an huge, old, dusty, well-worn book that should be retired to the rare books collection.
