Have you a sufficient substitute?


We've had a lot of rain lately. Lightning. Thunder. You know the bit. This event happened earlier this week when a nearby tree was hit by lightning and a huge branch came crashing from an old oak tree. This was about 300 feet from my front door. I'm glad I don't park on the street (all the time).

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the serenity that comes with acceptance

that the spiritual program I've learned in AA has become a part of my life; it's not just something I know about

that Scott introduced me (us) to a new recovery blogger -
Byron @ All My Affairs

for days that stay so full I may need to take a vacation from retirement

that Hayden and I took the tour of The Johnson Space Center (NASA) yesterday (pictures to follow soon, undoubtedly)

If man can take a piece of moldy bread and make penicillin out of it... just consider for a moment what a loving God can make out of you.

Obviously not a good parking spot. It's good that a big limb avoided your house. What a mess to clean up.
