AA Thought for the Day
In the beginning, you want to get sober. But you’re helpless, so you turn to a Power greater than yourself and, by trusting in that Power, you get the strength to stop drinking. From then on, you want to keep sober, and that’s a matter of re-educating your mind. After a while, you get so that you really enjoy simple, healthy, normal living. You really get a kick out of life without the artificial stimulus of alcohol. All you have to do is to look around at the members of any AA group and you will see how their outlook has changed.

Is my outlook on life changing?

Meditation for the Day
I will never forget to say thank you to God, even on the grayest days. My attitude will be one of humility and gratitude. Saying thank you to God is a daily practice that is absolutely necessary. If a day is not one of thankfulness, the practice has to be repeated until it becomes so. Gratitude is a necessity for those who seek to live a better life.

Prayer for the Day
I pray that gratitude will bring humility. I pray that humility will bring me to live a better life.
