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

We have two authorities which are far more effective. One is benign, the other
malign.
~Bill W

Today I am grateful…

  • that where I was is not where I am
  • for soft, warm pullovers
  • that I am getting more comfortable with the ‘what anyone thinks of me is none of my business’ thing
  • that I nave my needs supplied today. A warm bed, shelter, adequate clothing, shoes, medicines, sobriety, recovery, hugs, smiles, songs, laughs, puppies, a higher power, people to whom I can say ‘I love you’ and mean it
  • for rearranged thoughts

The source of love is deep in us, and we can help others realize a lot of happiness. One word, one action, one thought can reduce another person's suffering and bring that person joy. ~Thich Nhat Hanh

All my needs are supplied too, except for puppies.

There are more leaves on the left side of that tree than on the right side.

Here's to living within those authorities.

Thanx for quoting 2 of my favorite guides today.

Blessings and aloha...

I like gratitude for rearranged thoughts. I've had a few of those lately myself. Every day is a new way to get rearranged.

warm pullovers give me hot flashes, but I like to hug people that are wearing them.
