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

10.30.09

I have learned not to hold back and wait for friends to come to me, but to go half way and to be met half way, openly and freely. ~24 Hours a Day
.
Today I am grateful...
  • to have fallen asleep last night listening to the rythym of the falling rain and soft thunder
  • that sobriety is magical (see below)
  • for 5.95 years of sobriety
  • that I have some good Halloween memories
  • that when the hard shell was cracked there is plenty of soft stuff inside to last

How nice to have the fog lifted! Sobriety lets our wits grow sharper. We can go after our dreams and ideas. We can listen to music and sing. We are part of the magic of the universe. At times we may not feel very magical, but we are. Our spirits hold much magic. Sobriety is magic. We work at making the world a better place. In doing so, we get magical powers. Power that heals and comfort others. Power that heals and comforts others. Powers to understand things that before we could not. Powers that let us see the world as we’ve never seen it. Enjoy the magic and use your powers wisely! ~Keep It Simple

The fog lifting with the sun burning it off is a magical thing.
