October 1. You can choose to be a person who has resulted simply from what has happened, or from what you've chosen to be and do about what has happened. Meditations from Conversations with God, Book 1 page 121.
Hi there you bunch of lovable alkies. My list of blogs not to miss keeps growing. I love it. I love all the different opinions, the different stories, and the common thread - alcoholism. I love the comments on each blog - some more than others. But the one thing I read in all of those comments is the love and tolerance that shows up without fail on a daily basis. I am really so damned fortunate to have this connection. When I don't get to "the connection" on a daily basis it just really throws me off. And of course IKE just sort of knocked me off for awhile and that is just one more thing that was "off." But as each day passes, the "being off" is passing and is being replaced with "being right on", and sober at that. Now it just does not get any better than that.
Today I am Grateful for:
God, my Higher Power.
Mamie, my schnauzer.
A beautiful day - one of many in a row.
30 more days til broom riding time.
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.
