Today I have choices. Today I am going to choose to be a SOBEAR. Isn't life good?

I have joined a site called You have boards that have have subtitles such as home, style, recipes, sayings, etc. Then you can "pin" things you see on others boards to yours if you like them which if you click on these pins they lead you to a web site with the recipe or product, etc. When you are surfing the web and see an item or pic you like you can "pin" it. I have my pin button on my toolbar for quick pinning. My daughter so lovingly got me addicted to this wonderful site. I love it! What a time waster! It is my favorite next to That leads you websites that they deem interesting to you based on subjects you checked as interesting. You just click the stumble button.  If you find the site interesting, click like the page and it saves it in a folder for you. I am not endorsing anything that may cause you to become addicted or may cause you to veg in your underwear for days on end. I am only here to inform. You are on your own.

With that being said, may you all have a good day and find love in your life!

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

I found this today in a Calvin & Hobbes cartoon. It just kind of sums everything up.

I came home yesterday after being away for most of the past 2 weeks at my daughter's. Granted it has only been on the other side of town. She had surgery and has needed help for her and the my grandchildren. Mainly the children and the daily routine. It has been a rough go for her. Fortunately I was off school last week. Last night I had an emotional melt down at my meeting. I have been so focused on her for so long that I felt like I was abandoning her. What do I do now? Where do I go from here?

My sponsor said everything was going to be OK. Just do the next right thing. And don't drink! I have the best women's group on Wednesday that I go to. I love them. I can go and open up and cry if I need to. I get hugs.

The next right thing today is that I have math homework that I have due today that I do not understand. So I will study and if I continue to not understand it, I will stay after class tonight and get extra help. It's all good.

I will sneak in that I want to expand my blogging abilities. More research needed.

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.

Bless others, change me. I heard that at a meeting the other night. For some reason that stuck out over everything else I heard that night. The topic was how we maintain our sobriety. There was a lot of good suggestions being brought up.

I remember when I got sober the first time how I blamed everyone else for how I was feeling. I let everyone else effect my mood and serenity. I didn't know how to be responsible for my sobriety. This time around has been a lot of work. Not always easy and not always perfect. I didn't see the change at first but others around me did and had faith when I did not.

Change is slow but is inevitable. Today I accept it and welcome it. I look to the future with excitement and anticipation. Blessing others is something I have to ask for help on though. I tend to forget that aspect of life. When I do, my life comes together in harmony.

Life is good today.

Post 9/11

Yesterday ended up being as beautiful a day as it was 10 years ago. Just as clear and blue. It started foggy and gray. How appropriate. I started to watch the commemorative programs but ended up crying as they read off names of the victims. What a hollow sound it was as they rang the bell in memory of the time that the planes hit the towers.
I remember vividly where I was that day. I have not nor will I ever forget that day. God bless America.
