Amazing

Every time we pray our horizon is altered, our attitude to things is altered, not sometimes, but every time, and the amazing thing is that we don't pray more. ~Bill Clinton

Today I am grateful...
  • for glimpses of the amazing
  • that every day I can grow through prayer and meditation
  • for a twelve step program of living (thinking)
  • to pick up the phone unafraid of who is on the other end
  • to wake early on a Saturday morning and not crave a drink


It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. ~Harry S. Truman

i thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. ~e. e. cummings

It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness. ~Leo Tolstoy

Scott, you're amazing. I've been sitting in meetings often, lately, just in awe of the people I have around me. Sometimes, I'm just blown away by their absolute love for each other, shown by a pat on the shoulder or a smile between real friends. Last night, my friend, Andy, spoke, and he said, "The longer I'm sober, the more I need you guys. And the thing is, you're always going to be here for me. You're always going to be here, no matter what I do." The lump in my throat and the tear rolling down my cheek... well, it was amazing!

Thanks, Scott!

Good quote by good ole Bill

"to pick up the phone unafraid of who is on the other end" That is the goal after some more amends. Those bill collectors want their money
