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

It's not a question of finding the right person, but becoming the right person. ~Anon.

Today I am grateful…

  • for the birthday celebrants last nigh with over 500 years collective sobriety
  • today I am not afraid of the silence
  • that the sirens I hear are not coming for me
  • for the incredible amount of talent in this world
  • that the only good thing about winter returning is that it won’t last forever

Friday night’s full moon

It's mainly a quiet battle. It's fought daily. We fight and win by acting in a spiritual way. We fight and win every time we help a friend, go to meetings, or read about how to improve our lives We move slowly but always forward. Rushing will only tire us out. Our battle will go on for life. We are quiet fighters, but we're strong, for we do not fight alone. And we know what waits for us if we lose. ~Keep It Simple

Awesome pic of the moon. And that knowing where I was is what keeps me where I am. Grateful, Serene, and in contact with my HP through the 12 steps. Amen.

". . . for we do not fight alone" - How lovely and comforting is that. In that case we are related to one another.

I am glad for our connection Scott.

Thanks for that.

The moon looks splendid. We witnessed it here in India as well.

Joy and peace,
Susan

Winter has returned here too. But the crab apples are in bloom which is an encouraging sign.

I'm happy to report that those sirens were not coming for me, either!
I like both of the quotations. I wonder if Anon has a boyfriend?
The one from Keep It Simple describes our program of recovery beautifully, and reminds me of the principle of perserverance.
