Amidst the storm…

This morning I would typically clean up, dress and head out early to a meeting. But this morning, my thoughts were preoccupied with family and things that I could do nothing about. So, I busied myself with singing prayers to God, dusting and organizing. Nervous energy activities that help me to disperse the helpless feeling… Continue reading Amidst the storm…

Though I walk…

It’s been awhile since I have remarked upon the weather in my entries, but right now, it is especially pertinent. The smoke from the fires near and far has settled into the air near our home, and along with a humid heat, has made it difficult to breathe and stay comfortable. This momentary discomfort is… Continue reading Though I walk…

Dealin’ with the feelins 😏

Sunday morning. Had 2 grandsons over last night and all went relatively smoothly, considering they are still pretty small (3 and 6) and aren’t interested in much except watching superhero cartoons and talking about super hero cartoons. Their parents have since collected them, and I am waiting for my lunch to cool down. My thoughts… Continue reading Dealin’ with the feelins 😏

Food for Thought

I tend to be a giver toward specific programs, unless God urges me to give to a specific person at that moment.… Continue reading Food for Thought

What gives? Gratitude. 🌸

Funny.  No, not ha-ha funny, just funny.

Then you talk to someone who is bubbling over with excitement about how the… Continue reading What gives? Gratitude. 🌸

Raw and Out There…

Meeting night tonight. This entry will be the blog-equivalent of an ugly cry. Spent some time before the meeting chatting with a long-time friend in recovery, explaining some things about my early life and how I didn’t come away with any mementos, y’know, stuff from childhood, because my mom was always moving us from place… Continue reading Raw and Out There…

The 11th or Thy Will be Done

Life has been a bit up and down lately, but I have been drawn back to step 11 tonight, so that is where we will land with tonight’s entry. “Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry… Continue reading The 11th or Thy Will be Done

The wide world 🌍

The purpose of my blog, my writing, my mission, in fact, is to bring recovery to people who may feel it is not relevant to their lives, but are searching for a missing piece nonetheless. I have been writing it now for almost a year, and am passionate about what the steps and principles can… Continue reading The wide world 🌍
