Solutions and stuff

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for solutions to all my problems

that I don't share in AA meetings about the reason my problems are so bad; I try to share about the solutions I have found

that before I could stop drinking, I had to realize and admit that many of my problems were because of my drinking

** and here's another phrase I really identify with -- Try praying. Nothing pleases God more than to hear a strange voice.

If I feel depressed I will sing. If I feel sad I will laugh. If I feel ill I will double my labor. If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. If I feel incompetent I will think of past success. If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals. Today I will be the master of my emotions. - Og Mandino

My husband and I will learn today the results of a biopsy, and none of the options are particularly good. The thoughts expressed in the Og Mandino prayer will sustain me through this day.

We have 46+ sober years between us. One day at a time has been a lifesaver the past couple of weeks.

I read your blog nearly every day, and am so grateful for your wisdom. Thanks.

Just thought I should post an update that the biopsy report shows a benign tumor, not the horrible metastatic squamous cell the doctor thought it was. We're so grateful.

Great quote. I like sharing the solution as well. Last night, I heard nothing but problems and very little solution. It is sad.
