IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

I'm not only one drink away from a drunk, I'm one drink away from maybe never being sober again for the rest of my life. ~Anonymous

Today I am grateful...

  • for the new topic posted on Sobriety Society
  • that Tammy Faye is now out of pain
  • that Higher power helps me cultivate healthier thoughts
  • that coffee can taste so incredibly good sometimes
  • that persistence and perseverance usually pay off, if I can wait a while
  • for 1342 days sober and 752 days as a non-smoker

A wonderful future can lie before any person who depends on God's power, a future of unlimited power to do good works. ~Twenty-Four Hours a Day

It is easy to love those who are at their best. But it is during those times we are unlovable that we may need love the most. And what a beautiful thing when we get it. And even more beautiful when we find the grace to give it. ~unknown

love that unknown quote.

"But it is during those times we are unlovable that we may need love the most".
