3 is good

The Manning's.  Eli, Peyton and Archie. 

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I'm teachable and want to learn more. 
My friend Mary Christine gave me some food for thought on her blog (Being Sober) last night.  It concerns the anonymity issue in AA meetings.

that I only occasionally "stir things up" as compared to the way I used to be.  I prefer to be more passive in my daily behavior.  ie:  "I'd rather be happy than right."  "Do NOT engage!"

that I'm off to go get a new driver's license picture taken after my 6:30am meeting this morning.  I could renew my license with my old picture, but I want to update it.  That current picture was teken when I was 3 years sober and 52 years old.  I'm different today. Physically, mentally and emotionally.

To live is to choose. But to choose well,
you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.

Great picture of the Mannings.

And I have known you since your last Drivers License photo!

I guess that I will update mine the next time too. I like the idea of not engaging.
