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

If you want to feel better, act better. ~Dee C

Today I am grateful...
  • for perfect Saturdays
  • that I got to break bread with two friends in their new home
  • for friendships forged in recovery
  • for dinner with friends
  • that birthday night at Lambda Center last night was filled to the brim with love and celebrations of changed lives
  • to have observed from a close distance (about three feet) the powerful and creepy effects of lust. I was able to offer an escape for a friend that was being hawked upon in an inappropriate manner.
  • for the giggles at the table at an after birthday night celebration
  • that I will miss Lou's posts

Miracles become medically respectable only when they pile up into big statistics, scientifically authentic. By 1944 there were about 20,000 active AAs, all former derelicts, all now sober and working. What struck me then, and has since, was not so much that the AAs I met were dry but that they were a new kind of human being. ~from silkworth.net (a reprint of a 1950 Reader's Digest article)
