Happy Thanksgiving and other thoughts for the day

Happy Thanksgiving to all!  Tomorrow starts the season when the Americans begin their holiday gorge which, eventually, concludes in an extra 8 pounds (average) weight gain.

I met a lady about 21 years ago.  I never liked her a lot, but my sponsor told me I had to listen at meetings.  She’d always say things like ‘if you stay sober 30 years like I have, you’ll get what I’ve got.’  I would think: ‘ don’t threaten ME lady.”  But since I DID listen to everything she said, I heard this……”The day I forget to be grateful, may just be the day I forget to be sober.”  Thank you Pew B. for that jewel of wisdom.  I’ll never forget that, and I passed it on to the kids at work tonight.

I am so thankful for my sobriety and my relationship to God as I understand him.  Behind that is a very long list of wonderful people.  But, without my sobriety, I would have none of them.  Without God I wouldn’t have my sobriety.

Susan let me read from her meditaiton book today.  It was great.  Todays reading was “Meditation for Bad Girls”.  YES – FINALLY a meditation just for me.

I don’t have the book in front of me but a couple of things that hung in my brain. 

Bad girls are in touch with the ‘bitch within’ because they run with dobermans in studded collars.

Bad girls rarely marry for love, that’s why their last name changes so often.

Bad girls may share their satin sheets, but they seldom share the depths of their soul.

Bad girls are loyal to a fault…..people have been seriously injured that broke her pals heart.

There were two pages, but that’s all I remember. 

I’m not a bad girl any more.  I haven’t changed my name in a very long time.  I don’t share satin sheets, I have shared my soul.  Well, maybe I am still bad, because I am in touch with……THE BITCH WITHIN!
