We were reading from Melody Beattie in our little (after the meeting) step meeting. I've experimented a bit over the decades with meditation, less with prayer. I used to do some fancier praying in the past. Now, as Annie Lamott has said, I have basically two prayers. The first is Please, Please, Please and the second is Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. And this week I felt lousy enough that I asked for a sign. And it was given.
