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.
