Not So Pink Cloud...

In AA we must surrender, give up, admit that we're helpless. We surrender our lives to our Higher Power and ask for help. When HP knows we're ready, we're given by grace the free gift of sobriety.

Stop Fighting

Damn, I am soo blessed to be apart of this 12 step program...
In the last month I have been awakened to burning bushes,miracles and turning it soo far over and staying in recover and doing the next right thing(ACTION)..
eVERY -THING THIS PROGARM HAS TAUGHT ME HAS COME TO PASS ,when I do the footwork...
Hearing people with double digits tell me they have NO desire to drink or drug and do not need to attend meetings is there shit as well as someone else using ,or doing there thing...all I can do is offer suggestions and love them....until.....
For the first time in my life I understand what it means to stop fighting any-one or any-thing...and to take care of myself...
For all my support group I love you soo much....as well as the rest of my a.a. family..
THANK YOU, THANK YOU ,THANK YOU ALL..... Posted by Picasa

Memories

I can't tell any-one who has not had the GOD's miracles experience how over whelming it is...Sometimes the best relationships are formed ,old ones become better,and our turning things over are an obvious miracle...Lately I have been in the middle of over whelming crap..because of you guys and the WE of this program I have even watched it work for my mom...God sure puts things in motion ...Knowing the tools I have been so fortunate in having in this program ,and the ability to use them..even when I was emotionally frozen...I am so much more a better person than yesterday... I can not express my gratitude enough for ALL of you....specially those of you who have listen to me vomit on a daily bases of late....
Dennis R. your call last night (and I am sure God works thru you)probally gave a lot of peace to my heart....God is surely there... it is unfortunate it took some thing as bad as this for me to see the miracles again...God Bless every-one...xoxoxox's

A Constant In My Life

Daily Reflections is a important morning meditation for me.This morning another revalation.
Having admitted my powerlessness and made a decision to turn my will over and my life to the care of God,I don't decide which defects get removed,or what order or time framef rame.I ask God to decide which ones stand in the way of my usefullness to others and then ask him to humbly remove them.
Grateful for Mary"s sharing this photo(yes that is cowgirl Mary)
Mary(my friend, teacher)
Every face I see in every meeting(teachers)
Carmen and Amber(true constants,teachers))
the constants I have in my life

Dennis(my tough disciplinary.correct teacher,life perserver,friend)
Angie (my heart.teacher)

Jerry's big heart (friend,teacher)
Dave and Scott(friends,teachers)
my aussie shepard(Sissy) who I get to clean up after ,reminding me about being a constant to her
and how we also act out if we are not getting the attention we need
