An experience I am not missing




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that today is the only day I can live today

that I got to catch up and eat dinner with one of my first recovery buddies last night; we don't see each other very often any more

that I get to chair an A.A. meeting this morning; it's always a good experience

that I am going to enjoy the fellowship of many alcoholics today, many of whom are just like me

that I'll laugh more times today than I did during my last month of drinking



Expressing gratitude seems like a cosmic invitation
for all kinds of thankfulness and appreciation to pour in.

Today-laugh, and it is not faking.

That last few years, laughing on the outside, crying on the inside. PERIOD!

Today, Gratitude--expressed best in service.
