Comin' home




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that even though I have not attended an official AA meeting since leaving Houston, I feel serene and at ease with myself and my sobriety. I have prayed more than usual and have tried harder than usual to practice the Steps, especially Steps 3 & 11. I also brought AA literature, although I left it with someone who wanted to read it since I can replace it easy enough.

that I leave Trinidad this morning, headed back to Houston and home!

that Hayden and I stayed in a small hotel last night where we stayed 6 1/2 years ago when we first met; it's at a marina and is very peaceful

that I have learned (sometimes the hard way) that the grass is not always greener on the other side. It always has to be mowed.

for hotel buffet breakfasts --- I've always enjoyed them


One of the oldest human needs is having someone wonder where you are when you don't come home at night.

Wherever you go, there you are. I'm glad you had a good trip and that you are heading home now.

It looks like a big cupcake fell upside down into that bay. You're not the one behind that caper, are you?

I'm so glad you've had a nice time. I've tried to hold the city together until you could get back.

thanks for your comments... lol even the silly ones ☺
Also AMEN to the grass not being greener on the other side, as it has to be mowed and maintained

have a good day ♥

When I didn't come home at night--I SURE wished there'd be no one to meet me at the door the next morning!

Yes, I've heard that about the grass too. The photo looks very peaceful. You met at a marina--that's neat.
