I got to go to a meeting this morning... it is good.
I get to bake a pie to take to an AA picnic today... it is good.
All my children are within a 100 mile radius this year, and I am in the same radius... it is good.
No one in my family is serving in a war this year... it is good.
That we live in a country where young men and women are willing to voluntarily defend our freedoms... it is good.
That we get to be sober, alive, functional human beings... it is incredibly good.
Happy Independence Day to you all.
"The more we become willing to depend upon a Higher Power, the more independent we actually are. Therefore, dependence as AA practices it is really a means of gaining true independence of the spirit." Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 37
