Signing Off For Now

February 1 - God is the energy you call imagination.  God is creation.  God is first thought.  And God is last experience.  And God is everything in between.  Page 198 - Meditations from "Conversations with God - Book 1."

God is the only constant in this world.  I know this because it is only He that has always been with me and has carried me when I could not carry myself.  For this I am grateful.

This past Saturday night was Birthday Night at Lambda.  There were 37 participants with a total of 529 years.  I was blessed with being able to claim 18 of those for myself and I was one of those 37.

Sobriety is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I do not feel that I ever will abandon it.  I am committed to my sobriety like I have never been committed to anything else.  It has been a gift from God and therefore a Miracle.

And yes, I am signing off for now.  I find that blogging has become a chore rather than a joy as it used to be.  I have talked to my sponsor about this and he agrees that I should probably step away from it for awhile.  I am not shutting it down because I may drop a Post every now and then.  I do check y'all's blog from time to time, I just don't comment much anymore.

My health is getting better all the time.  I'm still doing the Aquatice therapy 3 days a week and am up to 25 repititions on each of my exercises.  It has made a tremendous difference in the way I feel and I can walk much better than I have for a long while.  Being dibetic I have had neuropathy in both of my feet and that can wallop one's ballance.  The exercizing has hellped that tremendously.  Mental health is doing well also and I am now on a once a month therapy schedule with my psychiatrist.  For the past 8 years I have gone from two or three times a week, to weekly with 2008 and 2009.  2009 I started biweekly, then to every three weeks and now monthly.  Progress.

I love and highly respect every one of you.

Tonight I am grateful for:

  • God, my Higher Power.
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my miniature schnauzer.
  • My Sponsor
  • My Spiritual growth that is an ongoing work in progress, it will never reach perfection.
  • Friends of 4 and 5 decades
  • My sober friends that call me on my crap ever so gently.
  • All y'all
Y'all be pretty now, ya heah!
