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

If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. ~Mary Engelbreit

Today I am grateful…

  • for the foundation for life the program of AA has given me. When that foundation is shaking I can know it is God that is shaking it. (thanks, Dave)
  • to have met a young man who got sober two days after I did and is celebrating this month, too
  • that I can put Pam’s name here and she feels famous ‘nshit
  • that I resigned from the debating society, except for occasional excursion within my own head
  • that people all smile in the same language

It seems a sponsor's job is to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. ~Bob E.

I am glad you are finally showing pictures of your many homes. They are wonderful!

Lou said...

I think someone is getting ready to ask me to sponsor them. I'm nervous.

I wish I could get some sort of monetary recompense for my celebrity status of "name appearing on blogs".

I'm grateful for your awesome blog and the reminder to remember what I"m grateful for.
Can I also shamelessly plug my new site? www.pinkcloudproject.com
I'm immensely grateful for that.

I love that you're doing your posts all in one now! Yay WLW.

Emm, I am using LiveWriter to post. It's so easy and I can manipulate the photo and type, unlike Blogger which drove me to distraction.

I like all the tree house photos. The sponsor quote is great.

I missed having coffee with you this morning. I think we should make Thursday a Pammie blog day! Great quotes!

Tall Kay said...

Mary Christine said...

I wonder why I never made it here yesterday... Well, here I am, in the middle of the night. Hi Scott.

I love that photo--part tree house and part windmill.

I also love how you've learned to keep it simple.

I have need of reparenting links at

Thanks, Kathy
