Short, cut, and dried.

February 19 - Stop making judgements against yourself. Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" page 71

Two Little Old Ladies
Two little old ladies were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in progress.
The thin one leaned over and said "Life is so boring. We never have any fun anymore. For $10.00 I'd take my clothes off and streak through that stupid flower show."
"You're on!" said the other old lady, holding up a $10 bill.
The first little old lady slowly fumbled her way out of her clothes and, completely naked, streaked (as fast as an old lady can) through the front door of the flower show.
Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall, followed by loud applause and shrill whistling. Finally, the smiling and naked old lady came through the exit door surrounded by a cheering crowd.
"What happened?" asked her waiting friend.
"I won 1st Prize as Best Dried Arrangement."
Badda boom, badda bang.
Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • My Right Eye
  • Remembering to take my eye meds two out of four times - not good. See quote above.
  • My needs are met.
  • My wants aren't starving
  • Syd and Steveroni for their presentations of the traditions.
  • All y'all

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.
