just thinkin' ...

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that it's been easy for me to accept the fact that one day, many years ago, I crossed the line whereupon my drinking became necessary for me to make it through each day. Remembering that fact is what makes each sober day for me an absolute miracle!

that by surrounding myself with other miracles every day, I stay sober without much trouble

that when I think or say that something is driving me crazy, I'm usually exaggerating

that it really doesn't matter what I think; what really matters is what I do

Instead of worrying about what people say of you, why not spend time trying to accomplish something they will admire.
- Dale Carnegie

Others can't experience what I think , but they sure can experience what I do.

Exaggerating ! lives under the burn of a magnifying glass- whew, I remember that...churning up some chaos to get attention, because I didn't know how to ask for it.Today I get lots of welcome as soon as I show up!

This whole thing is pretty miraculous, if you ask me. It wasn't that long ago that I went into DT's if I didn't have a drink upon awakening. Nowadays, On Awakening is my AA home group. I'm glad there was a Bigger Plan than anything I could come up with.

I am glad that you have the miracle working for you. And that you are a doing kind of fellow.

Yes--many more boat projects now to keep me off the streets. I enjoy those kind of projects though.
