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

Then we realize that we're both special and generic, and we use his knowledge for self-improvement rather than self-destruction. ~Mel B

Today I am grateful...
  • that Bill got those two women home. There are some crazy people you just don't want to mess with.
  • for yesterday's speaker meeting where the speaker confirmed you cannot run away from yourself, no matter how far around the globe you travel
  • that I am not upset about Paula Abdul leaving American Idol
  • that there is more than one way to reach the goal, and that I have found my own path
  • for friends and loved ones and those who are both

Rather than regretting that I wasted half of my life drinking, I am just grateful that God has given me the rare opportunity to live two lives in one lifetime. ~unknown

I'm glad that Bill did what he did. He still is a good dude in my book.

Bill said...

You know what? American Idol is one of my guilty pleasures, and Paula is what makes it great.

Special AND generic, there's paradox for you. Or a pair-o-ducks as we from the midwest are want to say.

I'm with Mary Christine, where's the sparkle without Paula?

We are so blessed that God has given us a chance to live 2 lives in one lifetime. Sobriety was the start of a brand new life for me...
