Day after tomorrow. all around the world, we Christians will celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Those among us of the Jewish faith will, for the most part, politely ignore us. The atheish will scorn us. With all that said I would like to propose that we all take a moment tomorrow and celebrate our own resurrections.
We, the lepers on the 21st century, have risen, like so many Phoenixes, from the ashes of our own addictions( pun intended). While I can not imply that the hand of God has touched us, it is a miracle of sorts that so many people from all over the country, and the world, could become brothers and sisters for the same cause. I am sure that many of us felt that nothing short of Devine Intervention would help us quit smoking! Like all sibblings since time began, we have our differences of opinion, and we squabble among ourselves. A little ruckus here and there will keep the blood flowing! But we have caring, compassion and love for each other. We take the struggles of our brothers and sisters as our own. So this week-end, at some point take a moment to give thanks for those who have never laid eyes on you, but still care about you. This is a great place, where the daily outpouring of good far exceeds the sum of all that we put into it!
I care about every one of you! And I care about your quit! Thank you all for giving me the understanding of, and the opportunity to, practise "Collateral Kindness"! I have been able to help myself by helping others! There is no better way to quit! There is no better way to live! I hope everyone has a great week-end, No matter what you believe! Tommy
