Grateful List For my friend Daave

Today I am grateful:
  • for the new bud on my new rose bush (see above)
  • that wrinkles do not hurt
  • for friends who call
  • for friends who answer the phone when I call
  • for a friend who loaned me a CD of Bill Wilson speaking on the day Dr. Bob died - I hadn't heard it before yesterday
  • that we mostly haven't "loused this thing up" as Dr. Bob warned Bill
  • that I get to go to my church this morning and spend an hour in silent prayer
  • for knowing that "feelings aren't facts" and I am just suffering from post-race let down - I will bounce back.

"Believe more deeply. Hold you face up to the Light, even though for the moment you do not see." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 3

That postpartum stuff can be agonizing. This morning's prayer time just might be the thing you need. Take care, MC.

Nice thing to read first thing, MC.

The best thing about emotional sobriety is not letting my feelings control my life anymore.

I thought of you this morning on my measley 2.5 mile run. Hang in there. Maybe start searching for an easy 5K in the next few weeks or so. Something else to focus your mind...

A rose so sweet...... One of my favorite mix of flowers is red rose and the bluish purple iris with white baby's breath. And today I got one of each from you and Lushgirl. Enjoy your day.

MC, you have a lot of courage and good stuff going. You've achieved a lot. I'm glad that you are taking care of your spiritual side today.
