The way it is.

custom-built for singer Bobby Darin many years ago

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for everything that got me here today; both the good and the bad

for the ways that prayer and meditation have evolved so far in my recovery.  I never would have imagined that prayer would EVER become a habit for me.

that Bill W and gang saw fit to let the rest of us have a Higher Power of our own understanding.  This simple concept has undoubtedly saved dozens thousands millions countless lives.

that I have more esteem for myself than ever before

Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which, in prosperous circumstances, would have lain dormant.
~ Horace 65-68 B.C.

That's a pretty cool car.

I am so grateful for the wisdom of Bill and Bob when they said we could have a higher power of our own understanding. That broad highway brought me to the most unexpected place! One I never could have started from.

Prayer is a habit for me too. I would not have ever thought that I would know how to pray just to do God's will without asking for anything.
