Sobriety is so fragile, so precious. I am so grateful today to be sober and to have a chance at a "normal," peaceful, sober existence. I know I've said it a thousand times on my blog and I will probably say it a thousand more but I know in my heart that everything good in my life today comes out of my relationship with God and because I am sober in AA. Because of my relationship with my Higher Power, I see the good in the world, I see the good in people and in myself. I have a more positive outlook on life today. I know in my heart of hearts that no matter what is going on around me, things will be "ok." The principles and people of AA set me on the path to a spiritual life, the principles and people of AA and the Roman Catholic Church help keep me on my spiritual path today. I am grateful. Best of all, nothing in particular has occured today to make me feel overwhelmingly grateful, I am just grateful and I must share it, if I am to keep it. And, I must remain grateful if I wish to remain sober and peaceful today.
I pray that today is a day where each of you seeks and finds God's Will for you. I pray that you each have the courage and faith to follow His plan, knowing that by placing ourselves in His loving hands, we can do our very best and be most hopeful for a positive outcome.
