When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love... ~Bill W
.
Today I am grateful...
  • that in he mornings my mind is quiet and not just waiting for me to wake up so it can pounce on me
  • that I am up early so I can get to my stress test on time
  • that I love it that Bill W talks about heartbeat when I have a stress test scheduled
  • that in recovery my life grows and evolves
  • that I continue to strive to trust all the while praying for release from the bondage of the ego self

Get rid of the excuses for not doing those things that make you happy. ~Fr Leo

Thank you.

Hope the stress lab is running on time (that's a little cardiac joke..)

It wasn't. It was an hour and a half behind. But the test came out all clear! Grateful for that item!

I also love that my mind isn't waiting to pounce on me when I wake up.
Thank you, God, that the stress test went well.
It's the beginning of a fine week here. Fine weather, fine chores, fine family, fine AA.
Love
