Welcome to ... August

I'm posting some pictures this week that depict some gay marriage advocates. I hope you're not offended; if you are, call your sponsor.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the gift of desperation; it has opened doors for me that would never have appeared otherwise

that I knew where to turn when that desperation got to its bottom

for my friends who celebrated sobriety anniversaries during July, now, on to August

that it was just 3 years ago when my sister and I made the decision to stop all feeding and medicating procedures for our mother. It would be another 10 days before she passed to the other side. I think this will be at the forefront of my thoughts for the next couple of weeks.

Expectation is the root of all heartache.

Isn't it curious, that we agree with certainty that our desperation is a wondrous gift?

Your writing about your mom has always touched me. No mother could ask for a better son.

I remember that tough time as you made the decision about your mother. You loved her so much. I don't think that you or I will forget our mothers.
