People assume that if God were to talk directly with you, God would not sound like the fella next door. Meditations from "Conversations with God" page 68
I had a 1:45 appointment with an endocronoligist today. At 2:15 the receptionist told us he had a hospital emergency and would be in after 3 PM. My appt. is now
1:30 this Wednesday. Pissed me off, but I did not explode or dish out misplaced anger at the receptionist. I'm so glad I have learned this way of living and continue to do so since 1992. WOW! Now that is a miracle.
NEWS FLASH!! I have not had any diet caffeine free coca cola in my house since Saturday. I usually have cases. Now DCFCC is my "smoking habit". At present my intention is to only have DCFCC away from home. I am going to be drinking tea, lemonade, or even WATER. I can't help but snicker at this because I saw the deveil from down under left a comment with PAMMEY that step 1 could be Coca Cola and switch to Pepsi Cola. My goal is to try to drop a pound or two. So much has been written about the ill effects of diet coke, I shall now see. This is but one of the changes I am making in my life right now. The other is to eat healthier so that my diabetes can be in check. Being blind because of neglect is not anything to be taken lightly. This is another promise coming true for me - God doing for me what I cannot (or will not) do for myself. What a concept.
Today I am grateful for:
My Higher Power, God who leads me in mysterious ways.
My Sobriety that has given me the power to be willing.
Dolly, My Schnauzer, that has recovered from her recent illness.
My Sponsor, who is now able to drive again.
The courage my fellow trudgers have given me with their winning their own battles.
The vile spewings from the devil down under that show me the type of Christian I would never want to be.
The strength and spirituality that my fellow blogger friends put forth on a daily basis.
Practicing acceptance and not judgement on a daily basis.
Now y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

We can whine about our diets together!
Let's get healthy...or as close to it as we can ;)
