HOME!

February 15 - There are those who say you must overcome your desires. I say you simply change them. The first practice feels like a rigorous discipline, the second, a joyful exercise. Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" , page 159
.
What a joyful, fun, and wonderful weekend just came to an end. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with Rosalie. We laughed, we shopped, we ate, we laughed, and did I say we laughed. There was no strain in the visit at all. Saturday afternoon I asked her when we were going to have "our talk." Her reply was, well not this weekend. Sam and Colton and I sat up Saturday night and just chatted away. Colton is 13 and is growing so quickly. Next thing we will know he will be grown and have his own 13 year old. Oy vay.

Tonight I am grateful for:
.
God, my Higher Power
My Sobriety
Mamie, my OCD schnauzer
My Sponsor
My Right Eye
My Sister Rosalie
To be home. There's no place like it.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

Glad that the visit went well. It sounds like a nice time with your sister. The time for your talk will present itself when it's right.
