But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads. ~Albert Camus
Sent to me last night: It was superb getting to see you today. It was as if all of our lives came to a stop for a few minutes so we could all gather for a cup of coffee and snacks before we had to rush off back to our busy, beautiful lives.
Isn't that lovely?
Today I am grateful...
- that adding blogging to my retinue of daily recovery practices has borne such beautiful fruit. Last night I got to meet Lou, sit with her and Pam in a meeting and then we shared a meal of TexMex along with Alfreda, Lou's lovely mother, and a friend from the fellowship. Our recovery crosses all lines and gave us the comfort of meeting physically--we had all met across the ether here, in this medium called the Internet. Lou was just as I expected, bright and strong and full of life.
- that tonight I will have the privilege of welcoming people to the gallery
- that today I will have what I need, what I want and what nourishes my soul
Perhaps one of the greatest rewards of meditation and prayer is the sense of belonging that comes to us. We no longer live in a completely hostile world. We are no longer lost and frightened and purposeless. ~Bill W
