Tuesday Night, April 8, 2008

There is no need to recriminate yourself. Simply notice what you've been choosing and choose again. April 8 Meditations from Conversations with God, Book 1
Hoooooowwwwwwddddddy AAALLLLLLLLLKIES.
How goes it? Had a pretty good day of sobriety. Today was SHRINK day and we had a very good session. I actually remembered to bring up applying for Social Security Disability. He agreed, so that is something I need to work on for the next session on the 29th. If it is approved, it would mean another $300.00 or so per month. I don't want to go into all of the particulars at this time but that is another post in itself.
Tonight I talked with Rick. We caught up on a little more of the past 35 years and will have dinner together this coming Saturday night and then take in the Lambda Speaker Meeting. I am really looking forward to this. I do not know where this might go, if anywhere, but I do know I have reconnected with someone that at one time meant a lot to me, even for the short time that it was. I also discussed this with my SHRINK and he said go for it. Nothing to lose and a lot to gain.
God certainly does work his wonders in strange ways. I am a firm believer in the there are no coincidences in God's world. I just have gone through each day doing my best to make it to the next and appreciating the special blessings that I receive as I trudge the road of happy destiny. I have good friends, a roof over my head, a loving doggie, my sister, etc. and these are also treasures that I would not trade for anything. And on top of all that I am sober to enjoy them to their fullest one day at a time.
Today I am grateful for:
God, my higher power.
My sobriety.
Dolly, my Schnauzer.
My sponsor.
An endless list of things that I just take for granted - waking, sleeping, enjoying music, aromas, flowers, trees, and numerous other things that God has created for our enjoyment.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah!

Wanted to say hi darlin'.
Rick is getting to know a whole new Zane...I don't think you are anything like the old one you write about sometimes.
