Wednesday, September 17, 2008-SMILE GOD LOVES YOU


"SMILE - GOD LOVES YOU"

On my bathroom mirror there is a sticker some kind AA person gave me in the very early days of my sobriety. The sticker has been there for 23 years. This tells you I have not moved in all that time and that the sticker is probably a little worse for wear. Judge for yourself.

This sticker is 1 1/2 inches square (not very big), but it stays affixed to my mirror as a symbol of the fact that someone cared enough to give it to me when I felt worthless and unable to care about myself yet.

Small sticker - BIG IMPACT on me.

So....................my post to you today is:

"SMILE - GOD LOVES YOU"
(And I do too!)

I've been in that bathroom, and I never saw any thing on the mirror. Probably never USED the mirror!

That is a really great story and reminder of how others care. I get so caught up in "me" and I'm really working on that one. This just goes to show there are so many ways to brighten someone's day!
