Growing up

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air station wagon

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I'm accountable.  Mainly to myself, but I feel a responsibility to my partner, my sponsor and to everyone I know.  Getting sober at age 49 and then "growing up in public" in my 50's is an experience you must not miss.  LOL

that I have enough courage to do what it takes.  To stay sober and to do my very best to live the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Maturity is the ability to do a job
whether or not you are supervised,
to carry money without spending it,
and to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.

- Ann Landers

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
- e. e. cummings

You have to do your own growing
no matter how tall your grandfather was.

- Abraham Lincoln

I'm regressing to be the kid again. It feels good after being so responsible all my life. I'm not irresponsible just into being responsible for me and not everyone else--LOL.
