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

When all is said and done, willingness is everything. ~Frank D

Today I am grateful…

  • for two excellent meetings yesterday and fellowship after each
  • that as much as I don’t want to, I will contact my dentist today to see about this crown that broke off. I am a tad perturbed as I addressed this tooth with her a year ago; it was easy to rock back and forth. It was crowned so long ago I didn’t realize it was not an original tooth and I cannot help but think this might have been avoided. Maybe, maybe not. Anyway, I am a wuss son of a dentist.
  • that the past got me to where I am today
  • to have heard once, “Not even God can change the past.”

[T]he man with the grown-up brain and the childish emotions - vanity, self-interest, false pride, jealousy, longing for social approval, to name a few - becomes a prime candidate for alcohol. To my way of thinking, that is a definition of alcoholism; a state of being in which the emotions have failed to grow to the stature of the intellect. ~Experience, Strength & Hope, pg. 411

Thank you! Albeit Al Anon...I've let my emotions get the best of me the past 2 days...today is a day to focus on my program and that alone!

Is that Bunny with a fifth next to the bed? Bunny might need some program and a few meetings.
I am not fond of going to the dentist, although I have remarkable teeth. Just the cleanings are a chore.

I love the pic and those old wind-up alarm clocks are the best. I wish I still had mine.

Good enough, for today, is good enough for me.

Damn...on the tooth.
I'm not afraid of going to the dentist, I'm afraid of trying to make the time.
