just passing it along to you

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for my commitments in recovery; they not only help me to remain sober,but they pretty much keep me a happy guy

that we read Dr Bob's story yesterday in a meeting; I think he's a more interesting character than Bill W.
He said that the reason he passes on the things he's learned are ........
1) Sense of duty.
2) It is a pleasure.
3) Because in so doing I am paying my debt to the man who took time to pass it on to me.
4) Because every time I do it I take out a little more insurance for myself against a possible slip.

that I have no plans on drinking alcohol today

for doo wop music; I just love it when PBS airs those reunions with the groups of the 50's and 60's

The greatest lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes.
~ Winston Churchill

I'm with you on Dr. Bob. He was a real guy, a country doctor. He had no illusions of grandeur. Which I don't think you can say about Bill, Together, God was able to work a miracle through them.

It's so good that Dr. Bob and Bill got together--for the common good of so many as well as themselves.
