Willingness, honesty and open mindedness are the essentials of recovery. But these are indispensable. P568, Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition.
Lambda Center last night was magic. A good speaker who shared his story with us. Following the meeting was Country Western Night at Lambda. We had 78 people at 9:45 when i did my count. It's a thing with me, I have to count the number of people in the room. I even danced, although I only lasted half the dance at least I got the big ass out there with a Newcomer that has been trying to get clean and sober for the last 8 or 9 months. A good looker too, and HE asked this old fart to dance. I'm sure it was a mercy dance, but hell, I enjoyed it. He's moving into Truxillo House this next week. So say a prayer for recovery for Cody.
Today I am grateful for:
My Higher Power, God, for giving me the strength for 1/2 dance.
My Sobriety.
Dolly, my Schnauzer.
My Sponsor.
Observing a bunch of sober gay men and women having a great time.
To see strength in a friend with a heavy heart.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

When I glanced out to the floor, for just a moment, I thought I spotted Ginger Rogers. Then I thought to myself, "No that's Zane."
