Next, the weekend ...

First, we try living in the now just in order to stay sober -- and it works. Once the idea has become a part of our thinking, we find that living life in 24-hour segments is an effective and satisfying way to handle many other matters as well.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I don't need to explain or provide a caption to the picture

that I was able to have my Mom's sore mouth looked after and treated successfully (it's only a challenge because she cannot communicate what she is feeling)

that one of my best friends in recovery is facing some potential serious health problems with Courage and Grace (while not over-reacting like the Queen that he really is - LOL)

that I have lived long enough to have many retired friends

that we have our last scheduled Roundup Committee meeting on Sunday

for long Yahoo! chats with Hayden

that X-Files is on during the wee morning hours

Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better.

I love it that straight men will drink beer from a penis!!! Oh my, that's rich!

And I must agree with that last quote, change is okay just don't scare me.

I understand change is part of life now...it used to bother me because I couldn't control some changes.
Now I accept that...and that is
actually a relief for me now.

Hope Hayden is doing well:)
