An easy day today, I hope, I'll see my wife and find out the latest plans (possibly) and then the calls will start from my daughter - she's in "change" mode for the moment (autism can mean "extra work")

 

How about a "thought"?

 

The program and my friends in the fellowship have provided me with a whole new set of tools for living. Even the slogans that once seemed so trite and corny are now becoming an important part of my daily life: “Easy does it”; “First things first”; “This too will pass.” If I use all of my tools regularly and well, they’ll also help rid me of such negative feelings as guilt, anxiety, rebellion, and pride. When I’m feeling depressed, do I use the tools that have been proven effective? Or do I grit my teeth and suffer in painful silence?
