Signs of Recovery
in Costa Rica

(click on the pic for a better view)


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a reminder that I don't need to hate myself any longer; I am so programmed to hate me, that I often forget this

that my Mom began physical therapy again for this month -- she is to the point that she can no longer walk

that Hayden and I have a very full day planned on this, his last day in town. But that includes me getting to my 2 regular AA meetings, otherwise, he would not want to be around me. Actually, my short history tells me that I can go 2 days without a formal meeting. Day 3 begins my downward spiral towards insanity. Why go there when it's not necessary?

I also have my weekly visit to my therapist (Hayden will attend too) and another visit to my Chiropractor

for the DVD presentation, complete with music and other terriffic sound effects, given to Hayden and I by Jeanie P., which tells the story of our Costa Rica trip - from a wonderful friend in recovery @ Lambda Center

Hate is a strong word.Do you ever read Coda Lit'? Good for the soul stuff that is all about relationships with others and ourselves.A great source of guidance to connecting the dots for me anyways.Just a thought.

I just know your Mom is grateful to have you there to hold her hand and support her through all of her challenges Daave.I wish her all the best in her physio.

You and Hayden have a lovely dovey day together.Peace to you both.

Thanks for sharing.

Meetings are medicine for my soul, I'm finding.
