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

I never came upon any of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking. ~Albert Einstein.
Today I am grateful...
  • that time is passing and I am sober. Time has taken on such a different sense since I got sober--I can actually see it passing (or am I moving through it?), unlike when I was drunk every night and simply wanting my awareness of time to cease.
  • to be at peace today, with no worries at this moment
  • that it is the experience of life that matters, not most of the individual events
  • for the fortifying spirit of my Higher Power
  • that today I get to meet with my sponsor to do the Eleventh Step--my favorite
Spirit has placed a dream in your heart for a better world, starting with your family, extending to your work, community, country and stretching beyond your nation. Speak your truth and inspire others, for you are meant to make a significant and sizable difference. ~Mary Manin Morrissey

Dear Scott,

I am so glad you are sober and in our AA Family too.

I drank to forget bad memories. To shut that switch off in my head.

I see all that stuff that I was running from as the very things that have shaped me today.

The quote at the end is very powerful. If we all thought and prayed for world peace, world plenty and world health - we might just change the world.

I vote to try today. I commit to do it today.

Thank you for bringing that idea to the forefront of my thoughts.

I'm glad you are at peace...I don't like being in the land of peace alone. In my 11th year of sobriety....I worked every single day on the 11th step, reading, writting, sharing. It was AWESOME.
