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

Pride keeps my nose pushed against the picture so I cannot see the portrait! ~Fr Leo
.
Today I am grateful...
  • that colds don't last forever and sugar free honey lemon lozenges work wonders
  • that I wish I had a dollar for every person that will dress as Michael Jackson this Halloween
  • that there are some things I will never know or understand
  • to have a place where I can be silent and safe
  • for chipping away at The Great Wall of Scott, little by little

Sobriety is not likely to give us the equivalent of the euphoria we got from drinking, but a great sense of well-being based on realistic expectations is more satisfying than the ridiculous mental states we sought in drinking. Living the right kind of life will bring its own rewards. ~Walk in Dry Places

You won't win a dollar based on me. I've only made a food of myself a few times at Halloween. I might pass that up this year.

You won't make a dollar from me either. Sorry.

Hope you feel better soon.

I'm getting a scratchy throat... I might have caught it from you. Gotta get me some honey lozenges...

Stop chipping away at Scott! I like him just the way he is.
LaToya costumes would be cool.

a place to be silent and safe is absolutely a must have.
