The truth and nothing but the truth

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I go to a bunch of recovery meetings every week

that I don't drink between those meetings

that I have a concept of a Higher Power

that I have set-aside times for conscious contact with my HP

that I read recovery literature, albeit in literature meetings and not at home

that I have a sponsor who knows me better than any other human except my partner

Real excellence and humility are not incompatible one with the other, on the contrary they are twin sisters.
- Jean Baptiste Lacordaire

I believe that my sponsor knows things about me that no one else knows. But certainly, my wife knows my habits better than anyone.

:) Concepts are good, they test true and grow. Now, even if they test false like good alcoholic thinkers always do I'm sure I have other concepts waiting in the wings. Luckily the concept I have now is actually powerfully positive :)

Your gratitude makes me smile! :)
