An enormous menu of beingness

In seeking to be Me, the soul has a grand job ahead of it; an enormouse menu of beingness from which to choose.  And that is what it is doing in this moment now.  December 17 - Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1" page 173

I was havving trouble coming up with a title for tonights post, so when I read the meditation I just loved the "Enormous Menu" comment.  But this just covered any and everything that was running through this alcoholics mind that it just came to a screeching halt and said Yea, that's the ticket.

Today was eye doctor day.  Very good report, I don'[t go back again until March. YAAAAAAAAA. No more laser surgery this year.  God is good!

Joe has moved to St Josephs and had three physical therapy sessions today plus a group therapy session for seniors that are mobile challenged.  I am so happy for him.

Today was especially good for me because it was another day for me to be practicing being sober and living those principals in all my affairs.  I no longer have to make the effort, It just seems to be second nature.  But I am really challenged on some days, not to drink, but to just make it through the day.  As long as I am sober, I know I can do that.  It's just not going to get any better than that.  Sobriety rocks.

Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • Petey, the devil dog.
  • Being sighted.
  • That I made amends to my Endocronologist's nurse this afternoon in person.
  • That I can make the right choices most days
  • That the oh oh's are almost gone.
  • Family
  • Friends
  • All y'all
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah!

Glad to heare about the eyes brother. I recently had to move to another hospital. I missed one appointment at my old hospital in 10 years and they booted me out. So I thought well up yours!!!The new hospital has a specialist eye section that has a very good reputation. When I went for the first time, they gave me a battery of tests I had not had before and now there is hope. Glad life is smooth for you and good to read about joes progress.
