no HNT pics today...

he he what a bum, no pic today for HNT, lol!

We had a nice discussion at HG last nite, talked about emotional sobriety, serenity, getting along with loved ones, stuff like that.

A lil more gratitude...

AA/Sobriety/Health
wife/kid/doggie
my job and the lessons in patience and economic insecurity it is providing lol
a ride with my sponsee to a far away meeting Sunday nite to hear him lead...
my sponsee, and the impact he has had on my sobriety and my life
my other sponsee, who is awol, and based on the limited contact I've had with him, probably living in his disease again... hopefully not...
the upcoming AA retreat
upcoming RCIA classes
the big band I play in
my musical gifts from God/HP
Charlie C whom we lost to the great meeting in the sky this week, rest in peace my friend...
scout and her candle
MC and her offer of help
dAAve and his delightfully twisted sense of humor
Scott for his incredible artful vision and kind heart
Lash for being the twisted funny man he is
Matt for being such a queen
Jonathan, for sharing his early recovery stuff, keep on goin man...
SC, Shannon, Lex, Tabs, JJ, Suz, Gwen, Rex, Anna, Katy and TT for being such awesome gals, and giving me insight to recovery from a woman's perspective y'all mean so much to me...

prayer for the day...

God/HP, I owe You my life, why don't I live like it? Please God today, help me to seek first to love, understand, comfort, give, serve, etc. Help me carry Your Good News in all my affairs today. I pray that I can get outta myself... Help me to remember all that I have to be grateful for, and all the wonderful qualities of the people in my life. I pray for Your Blessings and Grace for Charlie and his fam, Teddy and his fam, my former partner Mark and his dad who we lost 8 yrs ago tomorrow, and for our friend Tony who is losing his dad to the big C. Regardless of how things went when I left his business, I pray that we'll always be good friends...

peace to y'all

It's ok, we still love you (in regard to no HNT pic, LOL).

Your heart is so big! You know, there are so many beautiful people out there that the Dz does not allow us to see. It is so selfish and wants these people all to itself.

However you have been able to rise from this battle, and carry a shield and armor everyday by your actions in AA. Because of this, I get to know a very blessed and kind man.
