The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose. ~Hada Bejar
Today I am grateful…
- to have run in the new year with sober loved ones, come home to Bunny safe and sound after traveling behind a drunk on the way home and slept soundly
- to have been with a friend as he turned 19 years sober at midnight
at faith and trust have taken on a self-propelling force
that I have today more than I could have ever dreamed during my drinking, and I have a pretty vivid imagination. My Higher Power has an imagination that is unlimited by thoughts.
that I wish for you a Happy New Year!
Nothing is more attractive than sharing with others. No trait will be admired as much as generosity. There is no surer way to gain the respect of friends and neighbors than to show by what we give that we care about others. We can give many things besides money, shelter, clothing, or food to those in need. We can give the rich person love and understanding that money can't buy. We can sympathize with those who are troubled, even though they appear wealthier than ourselves. We can share experience, strength, and hope with those who are ill or unhappy. We can even share our suffering with others who suffer, and hold up a light for them on the road to recovery. ~Today’s Gift
