Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1"

Hi my friends. How the hell are ya? Not too bad myself. Last night instead of going to Lambda we went over to District 20 for the first of the month Speaker meeting. It is usually hosted by one of the groups and they have hors deuers and then the speaker at 8. Well, last night it was supposed to have been the Avalon Group. Harumph! They did not even show up. Now that's just a rude howdy doo. Probably a miscommunication. After all, we are dealing with a bunch of drunks. It wound up with only 14 of us staying for the meeting which was announced to be a Step one meeting as there was a newcomer. It certainly wasn't what we expected but it's what we got. And it was certainly was a good meeting.
Today started off with a power failure waking me up about 11 AM. It lasted about 2 minutes and then it came back on. A few minutes later it went off again, for about a minute then back on. Then right of and then on and then off. That time it was off for about an hour. I just hate that. You can't do a damned thing. The worst of all is wondering if it's a massive blackout or what. Hell it's 95 outside in the shade on my patio and the humidity seems to be steaming it up. At 12:30 when I went to get the paper, it was hot but not really humid, but I was just out on the patio with Mamie and when I went out it was like wham - humid as hell. But the power is on, I'm at the computer, listening to easy listening music, and set to enjoy a nice quiet Sunday. I'm thinking of going to see the Brothers Bloom this afternoon. So right now God's in his heaven, and all is right in the world, and I'm sober. It just keeps getting better.
Today I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD (squirrel) schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • My Vision
  • All things we take for granted on a daily basis.
  • the power outage was just an hour.
  • My Higher Power never has an outage.
  • Friends and family
  • All y'all.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

Ya know, Zane...when it "keeps getting better" year after year after year it just comtinuously reveals to me how BAD OFF I really was. Maybe I'm due for another 4th Step? Hmmmm.
Peace, Bro

I'm a wimp in hot, humid, sticky conditions. I have no idea how anyone ever lived in Florida before air conditioning. That's just me.

I'm glad your power outage was only an hour.

God bless,
Prayer girl

That June 7 quote is my favorite!

I love electricity, wish it were free, and have no idea how it works.

I'm glad that my Higher Power has power all the time. Your outage comment was great.
