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

My program for recovery from addiction is spiritual and not religious. I believe that spirituality encompasses all that is good and noble in all the great religions of the world. It cannot be confined or limited to one religion or denomination. Spirituality stops the recovering person from looking for the differences; it stops the arrogance and prejudice; it stops the division and separations that feed the disease. Spirituality emphasizes the inherent unity of man. It teaches the most stubborn of men to hold hands. ~Fr Leo

Today I am grateful...
  • that today I will get to be in a circle and hold hands with two alcoholics, standing in unity
  • for another late night gab session with my newly reconnected friend in KY
  • for the peace and serenity of feeling truly I am where I need to be, doing what I chose to do this lifetime
  • that today is a work at home day, working on the commission piece
  • that if I focus on what might have been, it will get in the way of what might be

Common looking people are the best in the world: that is the reason the Lord makes so many of them. ~Abraham Lincoln

what do you wear at home to work on the commission piece?
Just kinda wondering.
Does Bunny ever mess something up?

You are a brilliant philosopher. Good luck with the new project...

Pam, I switch between a duster ensemble like Lisa Douglas wore in Green Acres, something with an empire waist and maribu feather trim, and my underwear.

Generally I do not let Bunny wear my clothes, but I have no control when I leave the premises.

You're not only a philosopher--you are FUNNY! Thanks.

--A common-looking person.

surely abe wouldn't have said that about the common people would he? do you think he meant it as an insult?
