Many people choose to believe that God communicates in special ways and only with special people. This removes the mass of the people from responsibility for hearing My message...and allows them to take someone else's word for everything. Meditations from Conversations with God, Book 1, pag 6

Just a short howdy and check-in. Larry got here yesterday and we have talked and talked and talked and talked some more. I dropped him at Joe's Sat nite and went to Lambda for the 8 PM speaker meeting. Sean shared his experience strength and hope. He has 3-1/2 years sobriety and really has a solid grasp on what sobriety is. After the meeting I went back to Joe's to join them for a late supper. They got in a very good 2 -3 hour visit by themselves. I'll talk about that later. Supper was very good and we left Joe's at 11:30 PM. Tomorrow we are driving down to Galveston and hopefully have lunch there and then back to H for Dinner.

Not much else happening. It is good to have Larry here. I will post again on Monday Eve.

This AM I am grateful for:
.
God, my Higher Power.
My Sobriety
Mamie, my schnauzer.
My Sponsor.
The fact that I have friends that have stuck with with all through the drinking years, still love me, and never passed judgement on me.
Friends of any duration, they are a wonder and a blessing.
Y'all.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah!

"Suffering is good. Joy is bad." WOW

F**K that! Guess you get the idea I disagree? And you do also, I know, Zane.

I have not commented on your blog lately, yet I'm guessing you post regularly. It's ME that's been a bad boy then?

Well, since I don't wish to suffer, I'll just have a dose of that JOY!
