In my one of my weekly recovery meetings, the leader thanks the participants by saying:
“Gratitude, ‘Jim‘” “Gratitude, Paul“
At first, it sounded a bit strange, but it’s grown meaningful for me. I’m beginning to like it. I’m even grateful for it. So… “Gratitude, Ronnie!” It hasn’t become part of my speech, (yet) but I’m hanging around with him more’n more, so who knows.
Early last week, I told another friend (at yet another recovery meeting) that
“I never expected my life to be as good as it is now!”
So, as I sit here in my morning chair with my CuppaCoffee,
I need to ask myself some Qs. Like:
HOW DID I GET FROM THERE TO HERE?
IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN SHARE WITH OTHERS?
WAS IT A SUDDEN CHANGE OR A SERIES OF BABY STEPS?
How ’bout this one:
DID I GET GRATEFUL BECAUSE THINGS (PEOPLE) CHANGED OR
DID THINGS (PEOPLE) CHANGE BECAUSE I GOT GRATEFUL?
I shared with my friend KURT yesterday a phrase that RONNIE said:
“The asking of a GREAT Q is more important than the answering of a good one”
So… I want to start a series of Saturday Posts to explore some of these.
Ok, one more, this might be the GREAT one:
HOW DID GETTING GRATEFUL CHANGE MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?
I hope “we” can get a dialogue going. I’ll share my thoughts, (not to prove that I have all the answers) and “you” chime in with your thoughts and/or Qs.
See U next week! …If I can wait that long. In the meantime, whatcha thinkin’bout?
