Happy Anniversary, Robert

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my sponsor celebrates 11 years of continuous sobriety today. I can't imagine having a more effective sponsor -- for me! This man taught me to read between the lines when we worked the steps yet managed to keep it simple and meaningful. Brilliant stuff. We speak the same language and although we don't meet regularly like we used to, we are both there for each other if and when necessary.

that my home group hosted a once-a-month District-wide speaker meeting Saturday. The speaker we chose to talk was magnificent. Her story of what it was like, what happened and what it's like now kept me (and many others, I'm sure) on the edge of my seat for 50 minutes. I was pumped up all day yesterday just from that meeting. Cool!

for progress, both inside and out

Tolerance is the first principle of community;
it is the spirit which conserves the best that all men think.
- Helen Keller
