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

Be aware of the negative rain in your life. If even a stone can be worn down over time by constant falling rain. ~Language of Letting Go

Today I am grateful…

  • for this morning’s text from an unknown source that said, “I have an overwhelming feeling of joy and gratitude for life. I am glad you’re in my life and enjoy the person you are. Namaste” I found out who by thanking them and telling them I did not recognize the number. Isn’t that a sweet start to a day?
  • to have gone through my box of old photos. I culled out a bunch to trash and marveled at the memories. I also started to scan and Photoshop some of my favorites.
  • for the incredible rain and thunder last night which washed the Earth and brought cool temperatures
  • the truth gets eked out, sometimes in small amounts, sometimes in larger amounts
  • there are things I used to run from that I now run towards

To know that each newcomer with whom I share has the opportunity to experience the relief that I have found in this Fellowship fills me with joy and gratitude. I feel that all the things described in A.A. will come to pass for them, as they have for me, if they seize the opportunity and embrace the program fully. ~Daily Reflections

Even though we've changed and we're finding our own place in the world, we know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we'll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we're not still friends.
Or something like that.

I love the D.R. quote. That's been my experience as well.

My text messages all want to sell me something.

Blessings and aloha...

"I see you" (I saw Avatar at Imax last night..it just seemed like the right thing to say after your post today)

namaste- a wonderful way to begin the day. i'm not sure if the rain is washing things clean or slowly wearing me down, but either way- it, too, shall pass : )
