todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for some lovely weekend weather in Houston, Texas

that I've rarely been a time-waster;  most of the things I do, I do for a reason (good or bad)

that I don't seem to get all riled up by being on the Board of Directors of my recovery center.  I know some people with many years of sobriety who have not been able to handle it.  I've now served 6 of the last 8 years on the Board.  

that I have chosen NOT to attend my high school's 40th reunion this coming weekend.  I don't feel comfortable around those people, so why submit myself to a situation where I'd be itching to get away?

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

I have never attended a h.s. reunion. I thought about going to one of them but decided against it.

My HS reunion was a complete surprise to me. I had not ever been, but was so glad that I decided to go. I made amends to some people that I did not think I would see again.
LOL on the Board of Directors--I know what you mean. I see that at the District level in Al-Anon.
