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

There is no greater difference between men than between grateful and ungrateful people. ~R.H. Blyth

Today I am grateful...
  • for all the sober fun last night at birthday night and the Halloween Dance. Here is Bryan as Richard Slimmons.
  • that November is the traditional month of gratitude. I am grateful to have gotten sober this month (11/18/03). Today I get to raise my hand as one celebrating.
  • that I texted Pammie this morning. She was a work briefly to finish a report then return to Mama's. She and L are preparing the path for Mama's Continuation Day. Pammie sounded good and right where she is supposed to be.
  • for a jubilent meeting with my sponsor yesterday
  • that this human experience keeps surprising me
If we have turned our will and lives over to our Higher Power, the real direction of our lives is out of our hands. We must think of ourselves as passengers in a divinely guided vehicle. ~Walk in Dry Places

Pam news is good.
Bryan news is not.

Thanks for the Pammie news. The blogging world seems soul-less without her.

Really like the quote about grateful and ungrateful people.

I can see a big difference in myself from when I started my morning gratitude lists in early sobriety. And n the times when I got out of the habit of doing them!

Thanks for letting us know about Pam. I've been thinking of her and her mother.
The human experience is one that amazes me too. Sometimes it is amazing in a good way and sometimes it is perplexing and disquieting. For those moments I look beyond humans.
