Patience

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the patience I was able to summon while waiting for Mom to be transferred yesterday

that she'll most likely be transferred today, the red tape having been completed

for the great effort by my sister during these difficult times

that my nephew has not demolished his grandmother's home since she's been in hospital

that a friend came back for a desire chip last night after a 4 day crack binge

that Oprah did a show on crystal meth yesterday and raised awareness of that issue

that I never tried crystal meth; this addict would have been hooked immediately

that I am getting to know myself a little better

for some new bloggers; people I actually knew before they blogged LOL

Tell me, I'll forget. Show me, I may remember. But involve me, and I'll understand.

It is great to be sober when dealing with a parent's medical problems. Hard but, great!

I love your blog. Read it every day. Its great to be able to watch another sober person grow and walk thru life with grace and dignity. At the same time, it seems unfair that I can spy on your life and you can't see mine..... so here's my blog.....

The hard thing about the crystal meth addiction is the attachment to great sex that is had(at one time for this addict)
I wish I would have seen that show.
I amazed when I see you how strong you look with everything going on in your life.

Hi darlin,' I saw the last part of that Crystal Meth show. REally powerful program. I'm glad your mom is doing so well.
I send her and you lots of love.
