I keep telling myself today that I am beyond lucky. I feel down today and lonely for some reason. I should have died that cold and icy February night I was drunk and wrecked my motorcycle. That has been today's theme. Trying to stay upbeat and happy. I am incredibly lucky!
Maggie brings me no end to joy. We were just laying on the bed and I thought about how lucky I am to share these times with her. Yeah, my life could be better, but there was no better moment between dog and man just then.
Things to be thankful for:
- Always reliable and fast Internet.
- Plenty of nutritious food and drink.
- A home that's paid for.
- A car that's paid for.
- A family that, even though I've put them through hell, still loves me.
- The programs of NA and AA that got me through so many dark times in my life. Times I almost gave up hope and started to drink again.
I have a speaker's meeting only a fifteen minute walk from my house at 7 PM. Maybe that's where I need to be tonight. Even though I don't like the groups in town, they should have something to offer me tonight if just another AA goer's struggle with alcohol.
