I'm just full of it today

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for 2 concepts that have saved the lives of countless numbers of alcoholics over the years.  These are (1) Tradition Three of AA's Twelve Traditions. -- "The only requirement for AA membership is the desire to stop drinking."  (2) the freedom to choose a Higher Power or God of my own understanding.

that, today, I have so much freedom to make good choices -- and bad choices.  At the end of my drinking days, the main choice I had every day was when to begin drinking this morning.

for awareness of my freedom

that I've made huge strides in the area of not comparing myself to others

Being a role model is the most powerful form of educating.
Youngsters need good models more than they need critics.
It's one of a parent's greatest responsibilities and opportunities.
- John Wooden
