Honesty makes us comfortable rather than pained, relaxed rather than anxious, and decisive rather than confused. ~Walk in Dry Places

Today I am grateful…

  • to have watched my fellowship pop up around me
  • for the reduced-to-tears laughter at dinner with friends last night
  • that I love Michelle Obama but her new hairdo isn’t working for me
  • that I love myself and my hairdo IS working for me
  • to have no valid complaints today. I could complain but it wouldn’t do any good.
  • for the day ahead and whatever it holds


It's the moment that's important. Each moment holds choice. Our spirits grow through working our program moment to moment. Moments lead to days, days to years, and years to a life of honest recovery.
It will be the moments of choice that we remember. The moment we call a friend instead of being alone.
The moment we decide to go for a walk instead of arguing with our partner. The moment we decide to go to an extra meeting instead of drinking or using other drugs. The moments lead us to our Higher Power.
These moments teach us that we're human, that we  need others. At these moments, we know others care about us--our joys, and our struggles.~Keep It Simple

Michelle told me that she was going to consult you regarding changing her hair. Are you telling me that she didn't do that?
What are we gonna do with that woman? tsk, tsk...

I heard you laughing at dinner last night but couldn't find you anywhere.

Hi Scott, as always, I am inspired every time I read your blog :)

I like the picture (and the quote in the picture) today. Would you mind if I used it on my blog? Any idea who made (said?) the quote? Thanks!

I think that Michelle should keep the straight hair look. I can't see her in a 'fro.

Does time seem to go faster when you get older, or is it just me getting older?

Mary Christine said...

ooooh, I would loooove to see Michelle in a fro. If anyone could make it work, it would be her. She has such style.

I love myself, but my current 'do is not working for me. dammit.

I was just thinking the other day I wish I had your hair.

I like your hair do too. Michelles people will be calling your people soon.
