Time for new "daily reader" threads

Hi, folks--it's almost the end of another year here at SR, and I need to make some decisions about what "daily reader" threads I should post here in 2017. I'd love some feedback to help me decide.

Currently I post 2 threads in this forum on a daily basis, "The Language of Letting Go" from the Melody Beattie book of the same name, and "Today's Hope" from an Alanon website. Two threads w/daily postings is a reasonable commitment for me to make, so I'm going to keep it at that level.

I found this site
Daily Meditations Archives - Melody Beattie
and am thinking I may post this in place of the LOLG thread for a year unless there is strong feeling that we should do another year of LOLG. Thoughts?

And should we keep "Today's Hope"? Would people rather see something from "Courage to Change" or "One Day at a Time" or some other source?

I am open to and appreciate all input and suggestions about sources, format, and anything else that would help these readings be of the greatest use to you, my recovery friends.

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!

hp, you have a great calling by posting these daily threads and I am so grateful for them.

Equally as compelling for me are the images you so intuitively find and match to the reading each day!

Thank you for your past postings and I have no preference and total faith in your future choices.

Happy end-o-year-start-over time.

bb, I am glad you find help in the threads as well as the images. I really do love searching out the "right" image for each day!

Seren, I also think those two might make a good combo.

Thanks for the quick replies, folks--keep 'em coming!

hp, whatever enhances _your_ recovery will be a guide to others. Whatever you decide to do just let me know if there is anything I, and the SR team, can do to be supporitve.
