The worst vice of the fanatic is his sincerity. ~Oscar Wilde

Today I am grateful...
  • that the nip of autumn in the air came early this year
  • that sometimes I wish I could switch to 'Pam mode' for the sheer entertainment factor
  • that I got my DVR situation straightened out with AT&T yesterday even though it meant I lost everything I had recorded
  • that today will proceed as planned--whatever that is
  • that I bet you I will encounter joy today in expected and unexpected places
  • that everyone that participated in naming the painting got all or part of their title in the final (see post below)

The disease of alcoholism is "cunning, baffling and powerful", and it manipulates us to believe "the lie". There is a point that we reach in our disease where we believe that crazy behavior is acceptable. Insanity becomes the order of the day. And when friends or therapists try to give us a message, we discount them. ~Fr Leo

'We can no longer distinguish the true from the false'. I just adore the wisdom in Fr. Leo quotes.

I think that you are right about the joy. It is all around. Your Father Leo quote made me tear up--it was true for me even though I was sober.
