Somedays, I wish I lived on a deserted island. One with power, water and plumbing, of course, and maybe a cook. Oh, and a nice spa down the road for those days I need a little pampering. Why all this wishing myself into a more solitary existence (except for my personal care retinue of course!)? … Continue reading Island Time
In order to effectively work my recovery, I must submit ALL parts of who I am, not just the obvious.
So here I am. Faced with the conviction that I have been recklessly using grace and a desire to “hole-up” as an excuse to run away from writing and working on this blog. My mind was brought back to a time about a year ago where I would actually stay up past 10:30 pm on … Continue reading Light it up
So, this season has been about trying to find my feet in my recovery. It is been one of starts, stalls and just plain exhaustion from being sick for several weeks with a stubborn respiratory infection. But every week that I am physically able, I make it out to 1 to 2 meetings a week. … Continue reading Grace for Today
So, because a part of recovery is releasing expectations, I will no longer apologize for my somewhat sporadic posting. My posts appear when they will and that is really between God and I. My brain is just flat tired. I have been working overtime for over a week, and it’s just fried my circuits a … Continue reading No Expectations
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.

Definitely a busy summer. Whew! And, some more thoughts on the family discussion of late. We do a lot of work in recovery that centers around why we do what we do when we are trying to address the deeper issues of healing. And we uncover some painful truths about ourselves and our families. When … Continue reading Painful truths
Summer is typically a time for informal get togethers of all sorts. Whether you are headed to the beach, or your favorite trailhead, it’s a time to come out from hibernation and get a little fresh air. Some will see the shining orb and, much like the groundhog in February, scurry into a movie theatre … Continue reading All in the family
Yes. It’s been awhile. No, nothing’s wrong. I guess the summer has just been a bit crazy and I have been letting my schedule run me around, and with my focus on dealing with my food and emotional issues, it has kind of taken it out of me. Some interesting news, however, I am singing … Continue reading Hellooo….
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 much 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 … Continue reading Dealin’ with the feelins 😏
