Cats & People

My cats in 2004.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for Step 12 -- "Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these prinicples in all our affairs."  Once I understood what this really means, it became clear that it summarized the design for living I had been given.  The difficult part is living it.  I do my best and I believe that most of my recovery friends do, as well.

for my cats.  I haven't mentioned them in a while.  They're still around; mother and her 2 daughters.  As they get older, they have changed.  They seem much more affectionate than when they were younger.  hmmmmmmmm..........

for the huge collection of people I worked for and with in the offshore oil exploration industry.  People from over 25 countries, including Mississippi.   Some spoke english, some didn't.  But they all (almost) taught me some life lessons.  If I had been sober during all those years, I'd probably remember more of those life lessons.  LOL 

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

Those kitties have had a sober daddy and I think that has made them more affectionate. Lucky cats!

how long did it take you to get those three to pose like that! Herding cats being a much used expression of mine... normally about getting alcoholics to all get to the same place at approximately the same time
