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

I have learned this: it is not what one does that is wrong, but what one becomes as a consequence of it. ~Oscar Wilde
.
Today I am grateful...
  • that today will be a better day if I stand out of the way
  • for my own program and the fraud protection it provides me
  • that today I feel so much less of a fraud than I have ever felt in this lifetime
  • that today I do not have to put any alcohol into my body and have no desire to do so. That is a constant miracle.
  • for the memories of cool summer nights in Kentucky growing up, playing hide and seek, catching lightening bugs and how black the sky was and how brightly the stars shined. As I would fall asleep the attic fan pulled the night over my face.

People have a need to feel their pain. Very often pain is the beginning of a great deal of awareness. As an energy, it awakens consciousness. ~Arnold Mindell

Loved that attic fan. The cool country breeze coming in and keeping us cool. It was great. I don't remember it every being really hot. I guess that is an adult thing, well, except with my daughter. Oh, how silly of me, she is an adult (she thinks).

Thanks for reminding me of the summer nights as a kid. We have similar memories.

Oscar Wilde's quote is so true...I can't believe some of the things that I did while under the influence of "john barleycorn" !
