I'm Here for Today

January 13 - If your values serve you, hold to them. Argue for them. Fight to defend them. Yet seek to fight in a way which harms no one. Harm is not a necessary ingredient in healing. Meditations from "Conversations with God- Book 1, page 62
.
Hey there, my alkie friends. How the hell are ya. The past week has not been one of my best, nor has it been one of my worst (close) but it has been a sober week. This THING with Rosalie just has me ripped me from one end to the other. Last night after my prayers, I just had a conversation with God. I asked Him to please bring us back together, I miss my sister, and asked for us to be able to talk. (She has not answered her phone for three week even tho I left loving messages) Today I called again and lo - she answered the phone. Very warm, told me she was quite busy on the shops books, no time to talk, but she loved me. I told her I loved her back. Thank you God for answering my prayer - and so quick. So I kind of felt better and went to the movie and saw Marley and Me. A great movie for Dog Lovers. I left the movie with a warm heart, and looked forward to getting home and Mamie jumping into my arms as I got in the door. I really have so much to be thankful for, that sometimes the Dark just smothers the Light. Today the Light came back. Just a big crack, but it will get bigger. God will see to it that it does. He always has, I just have to give in to the fact that it is in His time, not mine.
.
Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • Faith - it leads to solutions.
  • All y'all

Y'all be pretty Now, ya heah.

It was so good to hear from you today.

Here's a prayer that the big crack of light that came today will grow and grow and become a gigantic flame of love, hope, and healing.

I recently made up with my sister too, who I missed very much. We are so disfunctional, but I love her and miss her if we don't speak. So I am happy for you and me too!jeNN
