A rather simple life.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the life I have today.  It comes as a result of doing a few things ...

... finding a higher power to which I can surrender (most) of my will
... deciding that I'd rather live a sober life instead of the drunken life I had for so many eyars
... hanging around a bunch of people with whom I normally would not mix
... helping others when I can without having any expectations
... remaining teachable

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.

Hey, dAAve! I've only recently returned to my bloggerish adventures. I'm so glad to have found yours! One can never have too many good-natured smart-a$$es in their life. Recovery is GOOD. Simplicity rocks, and I plan to have a gr8ful and sober Thanksgiving Day. Come check out my blog when ya get a minute. :)

Some good stuff. I'm glad to be around a variety of people. Sometimes it can be tedious but I do learn.
