Who is the bravest hero? He who turns his enemy into a friend. ~Hebrew Proverb

Today I am grateful...
  • that Pammie has eighteen years of 'one day at a time'
  • that Wade has five years today!!!
  • that this morning I feel fairly normal, yesterday during the noon meeting I was hit with an overall feeling of sickness
  • that it is a rare day when I don't have quiet time first thing of the day, to get centered on why I am here
  • for what my life is today, and what my life isn't today

Look past the body, past the personality, past the behavior, into the window of one an other's souls. There we make a connection. The God in me recognizes and honors the God in you. ~Mary Manin Morrissey

I forgot about MMM. I love the quote, it's my perfect answer to people asking why I go to open AA mtgs in addition to my own program.
