Regular-size me, please


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I can go a full 24 hours without a drink today.  I used to have two 12-hours days.  I'd be pretty wasted by 1pm or 2pm.  Go home.  Take a nap.  Start all over again by 4pm or 5pm.  I did this for years and thought I was the luckiest guy in the world to be able to "handle my alcohol".

for Step 7 -- "Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings."
This is a step that requires action from me on a daily basis, unless I want to stay the way I was.
And I don't want to stay that way; I want a new me!

That I can only do so much and I can't do more than that. (I must remember this more often)

that I'm kind of short on time this morning.  I'm short on time because I have to get to my home group, which begins at 6:30am.

If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you'll never enjoy the sunshine.

Good reminder that I can only do so much and not more than that. Thanks, Dave.

"Hey God, where is all that 'help' you promised?"

"Well, Steve, I only promised to do for you what you could not do for yourself!"
