Attitude of Gratitude
7 am at the Hyatt in San Antonnio I made it to the early morning AA meeting that Hal Marley chaired here at IDAA until his death. He gave me an 'Attitude of Gratitude' pin some years back inviting me to come to Washington DC for a meeting. His beautiful wife loved to dance and we talked of dance, and love of life. Today Cheryl reminded us that Hal also said we must accept life 'happily'. That's truly a higher experience than the grim approach I too often bring to my own life experience stoically biting the bullet so to speak when Hal and his wife would have us all seeking the up beat. That's the only way to truly live in the sacred now too. So much laughter follows.
