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

Do not search for happiness, search for right living and happiness will be your reward.~Twenty-Four Hours a Day

Today I am grateful…

  • for live Scrabble at Starbucks
  • for Words With Friends (Scrabble-like game on my iPhone)
  • for rule #62. Don’t take yourself so damned seriously.
  • that I have been given today and the ability to make of it what I will
  • for all you bloggers that assist my Higher Power in keeping me sober a day at a time

Getting well is an adventure. We have moved out of the repetitious rut of past habits and are reaching into the unknown. There are times when we are anxious and fearful that we will not be able to make it. We are not alone. There is a Higher Power that guides us and an organization of friends who sustain us. The process of getting well is a privilege and a gift. ~Food for Thought

Balderdash is one of my all time favorite games. And I like Cranium as well.

Scott, I'm grateful for your presence here and the thoughtful comments that you make. You have the attitude of gratitude for sure.

That was suppose to be a scrabble-like post. Lost in translation.

Namaste (again)

Thank you for the quotes and insights. I have enjoyed reading your blog ever since I stumbled upon it. Its the first thing I check with I get home from work. I find it gives me a time to stop, slow down and reflect. What a nice way to start the evening.

Hi Scott, What is up with all the advertising comments all of a sudden?

Anyway, thank you for always being so consistently Scott.
