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

Everyone has his own fingerprints. The white light streams down to be broken up by those human prisms into all the colors of the rainbow. Take your own color in the pattern and be just that. ~Charles R. Brow

Today I am grateful…

  • today I do not have to drink or use a drug to alter my feelings
  • for the chance to meet with my sponsor
  • last night I got a big dose of Armando’s Taco truck tacos, the art of Barkley Hendricks at the CAMH, got in half a meeting and fellowship afterwards. Great Friday night!
  • that when I was asked to share and since I got there late, I just apologized for being late, that the tacos at the Contemporary Art Museum were fantastic and that I was grateful to be in a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous and let someone who showed up on time share
  • tonight is birthday night at Lambda Center

Me, C. 1987

The Big Book clearly says that before I am halfway through making amends, I will begin to know a "new" freedom; not the old freedom of doing what I pleased, without regard to others, but the new freedom that allows fulfillment of the promises in my life. What a joy to be free! ~Daily Reflections

Someone looks really nice back in 1987.

Joy always,

I really like your humility in letting someone who was on time share, that is so great that as alcoholics we are able to get out of ourselves. I work on that daily....

Did you trim your own beard? That has to be the nicest beard I have seen in a long time. My hubby keeps trying to go for the ZZ-top look. That only works if you are actually ZZ-top.

Kim, photos can be deceiving! But I do trim my beard and cut my hair.

Pam said...

Hey look! You liked white shirts back then too, but you obviously were dying your beard since we all know its a gray color.

Scott W said...

I don't wear white shirts so much now, but then I only colored one white spot. Now it's all white!
