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

My friend, if I could give you one thing, I would give you the ability to see yourself as others see you... then you would realize what a truly special person you are. ~Barbara A. Billings
.
Today I am grateful...
  • for up close and personal time with friends
  • for the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous
  • that the Service Auction last night raised $3,700+ for the Houston Round Up
  • that I was able to have carbs several times yesterday and not gain a pound
  • that though I woke up feeling a little sad (I think because of the dream I had where I rescued two Boston Bulldogs) I know it will quickly pass

When illumination dawns in a human being, God is no longer just a promise, but an actual achievement. ~Sri Chinmoy

Did you know that Barbara Billings married a guy named Ley and ended up co-starring on Leave It To Beaver?

I needed that quote. Why can't it be enough that others think well of me? As a recovering codependent, that ought to be all I could possibly want.

I love the idea of you single handedly rescuing the Bostons! Did they jump up on you then!

The quote reminds me of Robert Burns famous line: O, wad some Power the giftie gie us, To see oursels as others see us!
