Second Thoughts!

THINK IT THROUGH

Earlier this morning I had posted a "Blong". I was very tired while typing it out, and reading it this morning, it just didn't make much sense. So it is now in cyber-heaven, or maybe cyber-hell -grin.

Short gratitude List:

  • That I have enough sobriety to know when to delete (well, sometimes!)
  • For the cold air this morning
  • Reminds me of how wonderful is the warm
  • For a motorized scooter
  • To ride to two early meetings
  • GOOOD meetings
  • That I've been sober long enough to know the difference
  • For my wife, family, and friends
  • For bloggers, OH! how grateful!
  • For the new guy I may meet this morning
  • That I now believe in a God Who is directing me
  • That--so far today--I have 'listened' to God
  • That you do not care if this list is short or "Blong"
  • Music, all kinds
  • My gigs, and my French violin (c.1856)
  • That somehow time stopped enough so I could jot down this list
  • Maybe my guardian angel Flex had something to do with that -grin
  • to be born in United States at this time--or any time
  • That I still have a winter coat
  • Which I'm gonna wear now, as I bike outta here!
Peace and L.O.V.E., from

Syd said...

I like gratitude lists. They get all the points across. I probably need to do more of them on the blog.

I posted about a violinist yesterday. You might like the story.

Patty said...

I too, am grateful for the cold air this morning, in a different way though! Have a great day!

Prayer Girl said...

You can NEVER go wrong with a gratitude list.

All of us can never be reminded too often to stay grateful.

I'm grateful for your blog (not blong) today.

J-Online said...

Nice list. Have a great day!

big Jenn said...

It aint THAT cold if you're ridin'!jeNN

steveroni said...

You are SO right JeNN! In fact, if I DO get cold, I think of myself sitting in the center of a huge bonfire, and it helps...maybe relaxes, and I 'feel' warmer. The same works (reversed) for me on really HOT days. I picture a walk-in deep freezer, me in there, and I cool off 'immediately'!! Honest! -grin

I was up early and probably read it. Can't remember if I commented though. If I did I guess that means my comment is in cyber heaven or hell..wasn't it about scooter driving looking ahead or something:) See I did read it...does that mean I'M in cyber heaven of hell??

Syd said...

Thanks for writing about your story Steve. I really enjoyed your comment. It is neat that you did the very same thing and got the same results. I found that fascinating.

Cat said...

I think I could definately make time to drive to see you & PG in June - it would be a pleasure!

steveroni said...

CAT--OH BOY!!! Cat, I am just becoming more and more excited about this gathering in Annie K's home town. It's gonna be MAHVELOUS!

Yes, Syd, I had to share that similar experience with you...standing on a street corner in downtown Cincinnati playing violin, and watching all the little children being dragged away by their hurrying, scurrying parents. 50 years ago....

IDENMW Sounds like a Govt Agency, but I know better! Thank you for BEING a friend. I (we) all need them--a lot!

Kristin, VROOOOM, VBOOOOM 6/12/09-=-No we won't be coming on bikes.

SHADOW, what can I say? Love IS Love!

And Prayer Girl--not MANY spouses get to read their mate's "secret blog stuff". Glad you're here, though.

PATTY, and J-ONLINE, maybe I'm just full of HOT air on a morning full of COLD air? Is that the message here??? Hmmmmmm?

Selchie said...

vicariousrising said...

Ooh...I need a guardian angel named Flex. :)

Gabriella Moonlight said...

Love the list, love you and your gratitude and love for life.
Thank you!!!

steveroni said...

Vicarious Rising:

You can borrow MY Flex (nickname for "Flexible") anytime...just ask him/her/it.

Gabi:

It is wonderful to love, and to BE loved. We all know that, I hope. Do you recall a song called "Nature Boy"?

The last two lines in it are: "The on-ly thing...He ev-er learned. Was just to love--and BE loved...in re-turn" (or something like that).

Sara (Selchie): It's so nice to see you're BACH!
