- that six years ago today Dave was granted his reprieve from the grips of alcohol. He is truly one of the most generous people I have ever known. When I came into the rooms he would always sit by me before or after a meeting, often in the smoking lounge (we have both successfully quit). I was suspicious for a while, then I figured out all he wanted was to be my friend. He was born into this world three months before I did and he sobered up 3 months before I did. I am truly grateful for my friend Dave.
- for an email from Darlene, a friend of Father Leo's. She told him I often quote him here and he sent the above quote to me, to be shared with you.
- that it's a long weekend. Today I get to meet with my sponsor, so some work at TLC, paint, nap, play with my new iPhone, and whatever else pleases my heart.
- for freedom, freedom, freedom
I have never seen a greater monster or miracle than myself.----Montaigne
We know we’ve hurt people. We’ve heard our family cry out from pain we’ve caused them. Because of alcohol and other drugs, we acted like monsters. But we now live surrounded with love. We now work to make this world better. Recovery is a miracle. The rebirth of our spirit is our miracle. It’s no wonder we love life the way we do! We’ve been given a second chance. Our joy is overflowing. Our Higher Power must love us very much. ~Keep It Simple
