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

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls. ~Joseph Campbell

Today I am grateful…

  • for the snow day we had here in Texas yesterday. Some loved it, some bemoaned it, some drove like it was raining babies.
  • for yesterday’s meeting on service, sponsorship and the Grapevine
  • for my daily reprieve
  • that five years ago today I started publishing this blog, and for where it has taken me and for all the people I have met as a result
  • for all you that have been with me since the start of blogging and for all you that have fallen in over the years--thank you! This has enriched my sobriety in so many ways I couldn't begin to list.

Give something to those who are having trouble, to those whose thoughts are confused, something of your sympathy, your prayers, your time, your love, your thought, your self. Then give of your own confidence, as you have had it given to you by the grace of God. Give of yourself and of your loving sympathy. Give your best to those who need it and will accept it. Give according to need, never according to deserts. Remember that the giving of advice can never take the place of giving of your self.~Twenty-Four Hours a Day

I don't know which I like better..raining babies or roping you and calling you Doty. They both conjure images that..well.. are better left alone.

Just think ... I was standing beside you when you took that picture yesterday in your backyard.

that's hilarious -i never heard that phrase, but that accurately describes how they drive in Arizona when it rains!! Like it's raining babies.

Congrats on 5 years of blogging. So glad you were here to welcome me and that you have hung in there. I can't imagine that I ever didn't know you - or that I met you here! Weird, huh?

Thank you for your faithful blog.

I almost didn't understand that picture was in Houston. Were people still wearing flip-flops in that waist-deep snow? ;-)

Blessings and aloha...

Ed, Dave was kidding. That was not in Houston.

I too feel that having our blogs enriches our sobriety, yours certainly enriches mine.
I remember when we all met-kind of like on line dating but no one expected sex afterward.....well I can only speak for myself on that one.
