One More Day.

April 9 - Every prayer--every thought,every feeling, every statement--is creative. To the extent that it is fervently held as truth, to that degree will it be made manifest in your experience. Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" page 12

Hey you there, alkies. How the hell are ya. This one is fine, made it through another day. I was totally bowled over this a.m. when I signed on and I had 10 hits from y'all. Thanks for the response. It is so great to be missed. I don't not post on purpose. It's just as I said when I first started to post, I don't promise every day, I don't want that commitment. However, if I do stop blogging, I will leave a post to that affect. OK? My goodness, the poets are out in force on the ole blogosphere. It's kind of nice for a change. I don't criticize anyone's style, I'm just glad you're all out there. I enjoy reading your posts, the comments, and the quotes.

Today was a good day. I saw my shrink and he let me leave after an hour, so I guess I'm making some progress. At least they haven't come to take me away. Two weeks from tomorrow night is the start of the 50th reunion of my high school. Damned that makes me feel so old. Speaking of old, I had my transmission drained, flushed, and refilled today. They gave me a price and I reminded them that they told me another price, they checked my record and lowered it another $10. I then said beggingly, what about AARP, AAA, or Senior Senior Senior discount. She, yep she, laughed said oh you can't be that old and I said I'm 67 and she gave me another 10% discount. When the truck was finished, she gave me my keys and said "So, Sober and Crazy, huh. Well, tell Bill hello for me." We're just everywhere aren't we. (My bumper sticker is "SOBER and CRAZY." The sober part is God's work and the crazy part is my work. Thank you God for inspiring these two men to start such a life saving and changing program called Alcoholics Anonymous. It works.

Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer.
  • My Sponsor
  • My right eye.
  • Being sober.
  • My retinologist
  • Tuesday is one day closer.
  • All y'all.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

Zane, your post made me just smile BIG this early AM.

I never saw a shrink, but I DID have my transmission drained, flushed, and refilled. Then, as I was leaving they asked me if I'd like the same done to my vehicle?

Of course, people are glad to see you back in action here...you are one of the...the...the HAPPY people!

And everyone likes happy Peeps, maybe that's why I like to be happy
as it works itself around.

Good for you to ask for the discount. And nice that the lady who helped you was part of the fellowship. Very cool indeed.
