The Vision and Journey

I want to share my vision with you, my reading family and fellowship group. Back several years ago, as my family was coming apart, I would attend church and bible studies weekly, and come home feeling worse than when I left. Jesus had been a part of my life since I was 8 years old.… Continue reading The Vision and Journey

Planting to Harvest 🌾

A beautiful weekend. And not just because it stopped raining for more than an hour. But because we celebrated that fact that we have a lovely, profound gift of love that is at the very core of our recovery.  During the winter months, we celebrate the birth of Jesus, and in the Spring, we celebrate… Continue reading Planting to Harvest 🌾

Rooting out Evil…

I am finally getting a little down-time. Just time away from everyday routines and demands. And don't get me wrong, I have a pretty good life, all things considered, in that I am not actively raising small people and there is no one solely dependent on me for survival. But almost everyone can relate to the… Continue reading Rooting out Evil…

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

Milestones and Grace

It's been an interesting year. That is, we are coming up on the anniversary of my mother-in-law's passing. Thankfully, we have our recovery groups and another group that we attend specifically for grief and loss of a loved one. My mother in law was a very smart, and determined person. She had a quiet, but… Continue reading Milestones and Grace

Tucking In…

Ah, the day after Christmas. It's chilly, but not raining, so grateful for that. Sorry for the extended break in this blog, but I have literally not had a moment's peace in several days to collect my thoughts, and I didn't want to just send out recycled meh, and call it a happy holi-daze rerun.… Continue reading Tucking In…

Opinion obssession…

Cold, snowy, rainy and gucky in general. But I jumped into my gym clothes and headed out. Got tons of stuff done, feeling quite accomplished for the day, though there is still plenty to get going on for tomorrow. Codependency and recovery from it is a tricky situation. Unlike our chemically dependent brethren, we cannot… Continue reading Opinion obssession…

Digging deeper on Saturday…

Well, the weather has been somewhat unremarkable. But that is not the reason I am a bit tardy on my latest entry. When it gets really dark, cold and rainy, I will have a tendancy toward curling up in a little ball and just...hibernating. I really don't feel productive, communicative or any other verb. So,… Continue reading Digging deeper on Saturday…

Letting go, bit by bit…

Cold and crisp today. Wet too, though I did not spend much time outside. Mostly, I cooked stew and started holiday decorating. I only assisted this year, letting the spouse do most of the actual decorating, whereas years past, I would do most of it to my specific liking, and then get his input, mostly… Continue reading Letting go, bit by bit…
