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

Happiness is not a place to travel to. It's a way of getting there. ~Anonymous

Today I am grateful…

  • that it behooves me to remember I chose my life experiences when I signed the contract with God as I entered this body
  • that if you want to see just how good you have it, go see the movie “Precious”
  • to sit outside in the November sunshine and begin step one with a new sponsee
  • that at 55 years of age I slept through the night without my bladder awakening me
  • for the freedom having a God of my own understanding gives me

We shall not cease from exploration.
And at the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time
~T. S. Eliot

That picture gives me an idea.

Also, I no longer get up to pee at night. Nuff said.

This stuff is all so good that I'm going to go home and get back in bed & take a nap to let it sink in.
If only.
