"Happiness is not a matter of good fortune or worldly possessions. It's a mental attitude. It comes from appreciating what we have, instead of being miserable about what we don't have. It's so simple-yet so difficult for the human mind to comprehend."

From Twelve Step Prayer book (2nd Ed.)

Are you reading my mind?????

I was just writing about happiness in an email!

Then, I look here and find your message!

Ahhh! No. It's not mind reading!

I think it's described on page 164, and referred to as:
"the Fellowship of the Spirit!" :wink:

Thanks again!

Being a "controlled" sot, I was a better driver when I was drinking than I am now.

Steady buzz drinker ... all day every day. My limit was when I couldn't say "toy boat toy boat toy boat" in 2 seconds. (Yep. I can do that even at a 1.2. :P ) And I was P I S S E D the whole time that I couldn't just TIE ONE ON!

I had rules:

I NEVER ran a red light or a stop sign.

I ALWAYS came to a complete stop for a 3-count.

I ALWAYS wore my seatbelt (Well, that kept ME safer and I wouldn't get pulled over and have to hide my wine."

I NEVER broke the speed limit and NEVER went more than 5 MPH slower than the speed limit.

Well, those were the things I knew were coming and expected.

Anything else was fair game ... SUPRISE! You ain't as cool as you thunk you was.

Love,

I thought I was so cool. Then my sponsor pointed out that the
definition of "cool" is "not so hot."

Oh. :oops:

"One day my life is going to pass before my eyes. I want to make sure
that mine is worth watching!"


I don't worry about it passing before my eyes as much as I worry about it passing underneath my feet :lol:

Hey, quick question... some of you know I lost most the vision in my left eye... (I'm still working to get it back!)... does that mean... that if I die and my life passes before my eyes... that a bunch of the stuff will get erased - because I can't see it??? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Depending on the answer... perhaps I should make some derangements to have my right eye poked out during my last few seconds of living! I wonder how I could arrange to derange that? :lol:

Ok from a nursing standpoint...I really wouldnt suggest the whole, poking out of the eye business. It never works out the way you want it to!

So....were you planning on telling me about this problem? Remember...im a nurse!!!! I like to know these things!!! (that and im a woman and we like to know everything that goes on with everyone) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Besides...even if you cant see, all the beauty that is your life will still be vivid and wonderful as it passes by!!!

I thought the whole world knew about all my problems!!! :lol: :lol:

The ones I have and the ones they think I have!!!

And, I thought that ALL women already know everything there is to know about me... or is it, just some of them "were born that way"? :lol: :lol:

JUST JOKING!!! People take the things I say serious... when seriously I'm not serious when I write it! Got to keep them thinking, you know! :lol:

"Thinking about me... leaves them little time to think about themselves"

Now, that's the real recipe for "helping others!" ... Anything you can do to help an alcoholic get their mind off themselves... and think about someone else... is a good deed indeed! :lol:

After I finished my step 4, my sponsor made me do the same thing with good stuff I'd done. I DID accidentally do some good stuff!

Dallas, I also have to remember that, when I'm typing my sometimes-too-sublte sarcastic humor, they can't see my leprechaun grin and the elven twinkle in my eye. (Sorry ... twinkie in my eye).

Love y'all,
