I suggest that it is your judgements which keep you from joy, and your expectations which make you unhappy. Jan 24, Meditations from "Conversations with God" page 108
Nudge toward sobriety: "When you're see 'two for one,' it's time to come to the Program." Rick N. from God grant me the Laughter.
We are not a glum lot. Alcoholic Anonymous
Goooooooooooooood Afternooooooooon, Alkies.
What a great day so far. I actually got up before the crack of NOON. I made it to the 12:15 meeting. Today's topic was when did you first decide you were alcoholic. A very good meeting. A lot of good things were said from a returnee with 3 days to oldie moldies, and some in between like me. This was one of those meeting in which there was no down time between shares. Then it was the after the meeting meeting at Luby's. There were 9 of us and we talked about many things. I always enjoy this Bunch for Lunch group. Not one person at our table had desert. I could not help but notice the two adjoining tables that three people left whole deserts. ???? It's almost to me like it used to be to me, someone leaving a drink. Jeez. I am so blessed to have left that part of myself behind.
Today I am Grateful for:
My Higher Power, God.
My Sobriety.
Dolly, my Schnauzer.
My Sponsor, recovering from a pace maker type implant.
Today, I did not have my eyes dilated.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.
