The Steps are Better than the Elevator

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that Mom wasn't badly injured when she feel yesterday morning

that she's been given a 4-week extension at the nursing facility because her specch therapist feels that she can make more progress

that solutions are possible to everything as long as I remain sober

that as more is revealed, I am in less denial

that while I've often been a day late, I've rarely been a dollar short

for some much needed rain last night

Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

I glad your Mom was not too badly hurt. You are right you always have a chance for a solution if you are sober.

Life on life's terms can be rough at times - especially in situations like your Mom's.

I'm glad that you are clean and sober and able to be there for her.

It must have been hard on your mom to realise that she won't be able to go back to her home that she loved so much. I am glad she wasn't badly hurt and that the therapist is perservering with her. As I said Mommy Pat is a fighter.
