Opportunities

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my sister and I met up at Mom's place and got to enjoy each other's company over a late lunch

for Chicken Fried Steak

that I got to see some good friends receive AA birthday medallions Saturday night

that when I was ready to jump off the tightrope of insanity, there was a net in place

that I can steal quotes from A&E's Intervention

for remembering the days of shaking so much I could not write until I had 2 or 3 beers down; when I had to write checks to pay bills, I had to write them in the morning before I got too fucked up, so I would drink those beers just so I could write. Then I would get nothing done the rest of the day because I would just keep drinking.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

"for remembering the days of shaking so much I could not write until I had 2 or 3 beers down" ...

That was me ten months ago. Couldn't do anything or go anywhere without at least that first couple of beers. If I had to write a check at the store I'd palsy like my 90 year old grandma.

whew! And I didn't care if I died.

seems so long ago now.

best regards, "thanks for sharing" as we say here,

I used to let my pen shake in my hand and record that in my journal in the mornings, I thought it was funny that it looked like a line graph. ha ha.
