Young, Old and everything in between

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for all the young people I know in A.A.  They see a problem and are doing something about it.  That's certainly NOT my story.  Even at the age of 49, I had no clue that my "heavy" drinking had anything to do with the problems I was experiencing.

that I've learned to deal with those problems without needing to get drunk

that I got to lead an AlAnon meeting last night.  Generally, I talked about learning to Live and Let Live in my personal relationships, especially at home.  My need to control people is slowly diminishing.

When you arise in the morning,
give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength.
Give thanks for your food, and the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself.

- Tecumseh

I love to see young people who are enthusiastically sober in AA.
