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

Whatever we do, one thing is sure -- if we turn to our program, we'll see how beautiful the world is. ~Keep It Simple
.
Today I am grateful...
  • to have celebrated a close friend's freedoms last night
  • for good examples
  • that last night was the first time someone has asked me, "You can't even have just one drink?" Then I had the pleasure of saying "No."
  • that I have been given time and experience
  • that gratitude keeps my head above water

Today I see my value. Sobriety has restored my dignity. Today I am in touch with that part of me that is noble. Today in my sobriety I am a spiritual somebody, not a nobody. ~Fr Leo

With over 25 years, I am so grateful that I've yet to meet anyone who was as much a jerk as I was in terms of making sure everyone at the party was drinking strong drinks...

Blessings and aloha...

It seems like such a stupid question to me now, "Can't you have just one?"
I know and you know better.

I see the beauty today because I woke up this morning seeing the beauty in my program and in my recovery

Isn't it nice to say "no" to that question?

i think it's funny that people always ask that. i have a family member that tries to talk me into it, saying that after all these years surely i can give it a go.
