Endless Possibilities

I Love Saturday Morning. The weekend seems full of endless possibilities. I have a fresh brewed cup of coffee. I am sitting by an open window, with a lovely cool morning breeze billowing through the lace curtains. The robins are singing. The leaves on the big tree in my front yard have finally returned (after being frozen in late April) which transforms the view from this window.

I am going to take a bike ride this morning. In fact, as soon as I post this, I am going to throw on my bike gear and get out of here. I am very excited about this.

Graduation was wonderful. The moment I heard "Pomp and Circumstance" I wanted to start crying, but managed not to. All the little children walked up to the podium and said what they wanted to be when they grew up. Imagine my surprise when my little Olivia, daughter of a couple of scoff-laws, walked up and said she would like to be a Police Officer when she grows up!

I am grateful that I could take the time off work to go be there at her graduation.

I am grateful I am a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous. If I am sober, almost anything else is possible.

Funny I could describe my morning almost the same. My window is open a crack with the cool air coming in,the birds are chirping and I have my cup of TAZO tea (calm). Amazing how at one time this would be things I would growl at ;)
Hope you have a wonderful bike ride. My brother lives in Thornton, CO. I am in NJ. Hope to get to know you more. I picked up your blog from sobriety society.

Namaste,
Gwen R

Cycling is cool. Hope you like it this afternoon. We have a lot in common funnily enough. I stopped drinking 86. Mother died 30yrs ago. Live in a city and cycle everywhere, and do gym. But I don't live in the US or have a pal that looks like Santa Claus. (!) I don't have kids or ex husband, but apart from that, pretty similar. I'm sure there's plenty other variables, but, there you go. Nice to see you MC. Have a nice weekend.

Hi, I am very happy to know that I'm not alone....thanks for the message of hope. I will be celebrating my thirteenth anniversary of my thirtynineth birthday in a couple weeks. I'm single and live in Southern California (but originally from Quito, Ecuador). "Windows open near and far". Wish you the best!
