What gives? Gratitude. 🌸

Funny.  No, not ha-ha funny, just funny. This isn’t an entry I wanted to write.  Maybe you know the feeling though.  You have your head down, you are stretching, reaching, working hard, yet feeling miserable, but convinced you can hold on. Then you talk to someone who is bubbling over with excitement about how the… Continue reading What gives? Gratitude. 🌸

Lemonade and gratefulness🍋

Today was pretty good, for all the right reasons. Got to enjoy some good family time, and good food. Also spent some time with a dear friend and recovery sister, who knows me well, and how to both support and call me out on my stuff. When life is giving you lemons, by the truck… Continue reading Lemonade and gratefulness🍋

Embracing Serenity

The fog is lifting. Slowly. Migraine cycles are no fun, as anyone out there can attest. But as I bubble back up from this latest episode, I realize I have to get busy writing once again. In pursuing the path of recovery, sometimes we can be our own stumbling block. Think back to when you… Continue reading Embracing Serenity

Personal Prayer

Boy, the character flaws are coming fast and furious as I enter the fourth year of recovery. If they were bricks to the head, I would be getting a CAT scan for the resulting concussion. Attending group tonight, and as usual, really enjoyed the music (guest musician) and the teaching by one of our group… Continue reading Personal Prayer

Remembrance and gratitude…

Cloudy morning, but a little sunny too. Rain on the way is what's called for on the telly, but I won't be getting in a twist about it, not after the glorious week or two we've had of late. Besides, as the old proverb goes, all sun makes a desert. But sitting here, enjoying some… Continue reading Remembrance and gratitude…

Grateful challenge…

I'm thankful that we're still mostly dodging the rain, and even seeing a burst of sunshine from time to time. I enjoy the beauty wherever I can. It is lovely when the sun hits the greenery just right. The last several months have been challenging to say the least, with respect to family. I am… Continue reading Grateful challenge…

Trenching along…

The snow is beginning to slowly melt off of the ground. It is cold, drizzly and wet. No real out doors time today. But I did spend some time helping a friend with some chore work. And that was good, through I should use gloves more often as my hands are a dried out wreck.… Continue reading Trenching along…

Prayerful Gratitude

Saw that our trees have mostly lost their leaves, but some are hanging on like someone has them super-glued to the branch. Which means it is virtually meaningless to clean the driveway at this point, but I do it anyway, because it appeals to my sense of tidy-ness. I have been spending a lot of… Continue reading Prayerful Gratitude

A hole in the clouds

I am posting a picture I just took that sums up the weather today perfectly. The sun is playing hide and go seek with the rest of us, darting in and out of the cloud cover. When it does pop out, it is lovely and warm, and I stick my face in it's path as… Continue reading A hole in the clouds
