Just another Day

Your saying you want a thing only works to produce that precise experience--wanting-- in your reality. The correct prayer is therefore never a prayer of supplication, but a prayer of gratitude. July 2 - Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" page 11
Hey there my alkie bunch. How the hell has your day gone? I had a good day. Started and ended it sober. No drama. Talked with Rosalie, and told her I may not come over for the w/e. I told I just did not feel good and did not want to do the drive but would let her know for sure tomorrow. She was disappointed but understood. I mean I've been over there twice in the last 3 weeks. I love her dearly and I will miss my niece and her 24 yr old son, but I'm just staying home. I'll call her tomorrow and tell her. And I know she'll say Well maybe you can come over Sat morning. It's great to be loved and to be wanted. We've had our rough patches, some have lasted for years, but now they just last a few days or weeks.
Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, My Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer. (Sighted a cat and a squirrel in the back yard this afternoon-might neer ate her way through the glass french door. She raises so much hell trying to get out, they are always long gone before I can open the screen. I love her so and she is so comforting.)
  • My Sponsor - talked to him today.
  • My eyes - continued improvement in the left.
  • No longer holding on to anger at my family.
  • Friends
  • All y'all.

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

I like "all y'all" best. Is there anyone else besides "all y'all" anywhere??? Is that everybody? I hope so!

Really learning to take care of ourselves, know our limits, is such a huge blessing we're given when we continue to grow in Alcoholics Anonymous.

Rest and enjoy your weekend Zane.
