SUNDAY Night, March 23, 2008

And on the third day he arose......................
HOPE YOUR EASTER WAS GREAT however you spent it.
I spent the day with Joe and Karl and I did pork ribs, Joe made Potato Salad and Cole Slaw. Just a really nice day with two of my favorite people and Karl even got to enjoy most of it.
Today I got a phone call from my friend Bill in Tuscon. He is an old friend from the 70's. Anyway he got a phone call from another friend of ours that no one has heard from for the last 12 years. The last time we saw him he was failing with AIDS, living in Paradise California. The doctors there were rather unkind to him and he was having problems getting the meds he needed. That was June of 1996. No one heard from him since. His phone was disconnected and mail was returned. I am so glad he is alive, working, and living in Yucca Valley between San Bernardo and Palm Springs CA. I tried to reach him today, but left a voice mail and when I got home he had called and left me a voice mail. So we will connect with in the next couple of days. Now that was a great Easter Gift.
Today I am grateful for:
My higher power, God.
My Sobriety
Dolly, my Schnauzer.
My sponsor.
My friends both in and out of AA.
Blessings of old friends.
Living in the Grace of God.
Now y'all be pretty now, Ya heah.

You still have the dots between paragraphs. Are you still in HTML mode?

I'm glad you had a nice Easter!
Getting news about an old friend had to be wonderful. I hope you do get to talk to him soon.

How wonderful to hear from an old friend. I often wonder about a former friend of mine, how she is doing etc. I could find out from her brother but she and I had a falling out in 1994 so I won't push it. I guess she is ok.
