A Day Late, But Not A Dollar Short

March 5 - It is when the going gets though that you so often forget Who You Are, and the tools I have given you for creating the life that you would choose. Meditations from "Conversations With God - Book 1"
page 116
Hey y'all. Well now I could sure have used the above quote yesterday while I was on my pity pot. I guess it's just a good example of not leaving 5 minutes before the miracle. Who'd a thunk!
I'm in the midst of making a list of things that have happened since January 20, 1992 that I have not drank over. It's not a real long list, just a list of things that happen while life is in session. I like that - Life Is In Session. There was a group in Los Angeles by that name, it was an off shoot of the Pacific group. I admired the camaraderie that the group exhibited on a continual basis. I have never seen it in another group. If you were moving, the fellowship showed up and moved you. If you were in your first year, they were with you on the significant dates.If you needed assistance around your place, they helped with that also. I just really thought they had a great thing going. It was a total support group. Funny how a string of thoughts move you to a subject to mention.
Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer, extra special last two days.
  • My sponsor. (No news - voicemail only)
  • Movies
  • Miracle - my money lasted from one month to the other with a bit of a cushion. I'm so glad I got rid of all my credit cards.
  • Tomorrow is double dip meeting day.
  • All y'all

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

Life is in Session--what a great name for a group. It made me smile. Have a great day Zane.

Be careful with all that dipping!

It's so hard to find those kinds of groups anymore.

When I came in I was a bartender six nights a week, went to AA meeting on the 7th. Several nights during the week, men and women from my first group, showed up to offer me support.
(Of course, I thought they came in to drink. They all ordered soft drinks: "Give everybody a drink on me!")

Now I realize why they were there--did not know that way back then!

If you need help moving, I'll need plenty of notice. It'll take a few days to drive to your house.

Credit cards are evil!

Have a great week, Zane!

Just swung by to say Hello!

steveroni said...

Zane, just wondering how you're doing? Hope your eyeballs are better.

If I don't hear from you by tomorrow (St Patrick's Day) I'll have to start asking the guys--I do know how to reach several of them, but not YOU!

Seriously, I/we miss your stuff here. OK?
