I'm very lucky .......

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

to be a novice at this recovery thing; I have SO much to learn

that I stuck around the rooms of AA long enough to begin to develop a Higher Power

that my HP has evolved into a concept that I'm very comfortable with; it continues to evolve and I think it will continue as long as I don't start drinking again

that I have a formidable defense against taking that first drink -- my Higher Power!

that sometimes this sober thing seems pretty damn easy

You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving.
- Robert Louis Stevenson

What a wonderful quote. Evolution of God is a beautiful thought today. Soooo much to learn. I completely understand and feel that to my depths today.

Loving and giving--I needed to have a balance. And learning--I too have so much to learn. Good stuff Dave.

This whole recovery process is an ever-evolving one as well, something I keep forgetting.
