Short, but sweet!

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the 6:30am meeting I attend every M-F
for the stories we read in the Big Book (Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th edition).
Yesterday we read "Gutter Bravado" page 501.  Here's a paragraph that really speaks to me ........
"The meetings gave me what my sponsor likes to call one of the most important words in the Big Book:  A.A. put a "we" in my life.  "We admitted we were powerless over alcohol ...."   I no longer had to be alone.  Fellowship and activity kept me coming back long enough to work the Twelve Steps.  The more I did, the better I felt.  I started hanging out with my sponsor and some active people at the meetings.  They showed me how gratitude is something that is demonstrated, not talked about.  Gratitude is action."

that baseball season is just about upon us.  I'm ready!!!!!

Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.

At the meeting last night, the topic was loneliness as it relates to alcoholism. It is a we program.
