A full weekend. Check.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I no longer think about drinking and I no longer think about not drinking

that I survived 3+ days of 24/7 AA-related activities in damn good shape, albeit a bit worn out

that we had 287 registered participants in the Houston Roundup

that I was elected to co-chair the 2011 Houston Roundup; this is a big deal for me as it will sorta be like having a real job

for a little reminder that I am constantly working the steps when I have sponsees that I'm working the steps with. Make sense?

A part of kindness consists in loving people more than they deserve.

Scott said...

congrats on your new service obligation! You'll do well!

sounds great - wonder how tired you will be next year after being co-chair? :)

working the steps because I am working the steps with other alcoholics...yes, that makes sense, which is the best part about being a sponsor, in my humble opinion.

The phone calls, complaining, bitching,and whining I could do without ...but I am sure my sponsor would say the same thing about me :)

How exciting that you'll be co-chairing that event. Maybe I should start making plans to attend!
