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

A great many people think they are thinking when they are only rearranging their prejudices. ~William James

Today I am grateful…

  • for the 12 step calls God keeps handing me
  • for the freedom of being available
  • today I have enough
  • today I do not have to struggle with a desire to drink
  • I can carry gratitude in my heart today. Gratitude has been a major healing factor in my life of recovery.

Who can render an account of all the miseries that once were ours, and who can estimate the release and joy that later years have brought to us? Who can possibly tell the vast consequences of what God's work through A.A. has already set in motion?

And who can penetrate the deeper mystery of our wholesale deliverance from slavery, a bondage to a most hopeless and fatal obsession which for centuries possessed the minds and bodies of men and women like ourselves? ~As Bill Sees It

You know, a dozen 12-step calls could be gross.

Sometimes when I'm rearranging my kitchen drawers, I'm really thinking.

Scott sometimes being so positive and nice also is very hurting. I just cannot think "nicely" about everything all the time.

Joy always,
Susan
