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

We don't stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing. ~Herbert Spencer

Today I am grateful…

  • while I strive to stay spiritually fit, I will never do it perfectly--in the striving I find everything I need
  • for all I have been given and all that is on its way to me
  • that daily I am shown, from inside, my Higher Power's will. I am given the power and the willingness to carry it out.
  • my sober days pass fairly quickly and smoothly. My drinking days passed slowly and painfully.
  • for days that end with "y"

The feeling of attachment, of being related, of caring about someone, is what life is all about. Before recovery, we may have feared we could not love anyone. When we feel love, we may also feel cheated because our affections aren't returned, as we want them to be. Or we may think relationships are just too complicated and painful. It's true that relationships are difficult at times. The only thing more difficult is having none. ~Touchstones

What is that picture? Couldn't decipher. Hep phone you got Scott. Nice.

"The only thing more difficult is having none" -- Yes we sometimes get so bugged with people but then we have them for keeps. I am glad that i have many people for me.

Good Night Scott. Sleep well. My love to Bunny.

Joy and peace,
Susan

Today ends in y - that must be it!

That quote is awesome. I wish that my days would slow down as they did when I was younger. It seemed then that days went on forever. Today has been a really busy day.
