Glad to be home

I got back from London last night.
Safe & sound.
Sober & serene.
What more can I ask for?

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that somehow, I can still make sobriety the most important aspect of my life while tending to other matters

for the meetings I attended while in the UK; they are very much like the meetings I attend each day here in Houston, although I didn't see anyone I recognized

that because of some things that have recently happened inmy life, I can now understand the phrase "it is what it is" to a much greater and more detailed degree

for so many reminders of why I live in this country

that I finally got to meet Kenny (Recovery Road) although we didn't get to spend much time chatting nor did we attend a meeting together

that I got to see Liz while in London; we've known each other and been bestest friends since 1989; an amazing woman!

that I even worked out at the gym a couple of times while on vacation (with Hayden pushing me a bit) and managed to remain on my new diet

Hi darlin'...yes I'm really glad I live in the country of Texas also...oh wait..that is what you meant right? I hope you found your home safe and sound also, and not water logged. You did miss some great thunderstorms...sorry, but I'm sure you can catch the next one in a few days.

Welcome back! I missed you. It sounds like a great trip - but I always think the best part of a good trip is coming home.

Glad that your visit was good. I like visiting other countries but am glad to get home. Thanks for your comments to me. I have been troubled by the close encounter of the troubled mind at the Al-Anon meeting. I am letting it go.
