todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for the ongoing rescue happening in Chile - watching the drama is a great reminder for me to keep my thinking in perspective
that we read CROSSING THE RIVER OF DENIAL yesterday -- one of my favorite stories in the 4th edition of the Big Book.
I really identify with so many of her feelings and experiences .......
*** "I just kept lowering my standards."
*** "I got drunk, blacked out, threw up, had dry heaves, was sick to death the next day, and I knew I would do it again."
*** "Finally, I made some friends who drank just as I did."
*** "After a day's drinking disguised as softball ..."
*** "... the thought of getting sober terrified me."
I love this program.
A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.
