todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I didn't wake up to a hangover; instead, I feel good and refreshed
that I didn't black out last night; instead, I remember everything I did
that I didn't spend $40 at the bar yesterday; instead, I watched the stock market eat up some bigger money (ouch!)
that I'm not already considering when to begin my drinking today; instead, I'm getting ready to attend the first of 3 A.A. meetings for this day (something I do every Friday)
We cannot choose our external circumstances,
but we can always choose how to respond to them.
