todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I'm blessed with another sober day in front of me
that my life as a sober man seems so much more complete
for this memory -- someone shared how they thought they would always have to get drunk every day. For the rest of their life. I sooooooooooo identified with this. I remember thinking this countless times for 3 decades. It was just my fate in life that I would live until drinking killed me.
for an ever-changing mind in an ever-changing world
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matter compared to what lies within us.
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
