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

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light. ~ Albert Schweitzer

Today I am grateful...
  • that I can wish my good friend, Bob S., a Happy 86th Birthday!!! Love you, Bob!
  • that my old thoughts have been replaced with these new ones. I thought I would die with those old thoughts.
  • for the fun last night at the Jason Villegas opening at the CAM last night and ice cream, chocolate tres leches cake and laughter at Chocolate Bar afterward. Not to mention the cute table of nuns beside us.
  • that Fridays in sobriety are about as good as it gets, but then there is Saturday and Sunday and those are probably as good as it really gets

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun. ~Charles R. Swindoll

I love the quotes!

I also LOVE Fridays now, so full of possibility versus a dark night in a dark bar in a dark place
