IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

A great many people think they are thinking when they are only rearranging their prejudices. ~William James

Today I am grateful…

  • to have solutions
  • that I can have days where I feel strained and fragile and know they will pass
  • that I spent a little while with a couple of friends last night but it did little to ease yesterday’s loneliness
  • that I have what I need for this day
  • that a Higher Power sustains me, guides me, keeps me facing forward

ShoppingCart

Our common problem is really that we're human beings who need a spiritual life in order to become our true selves. This can turn a problem into a new life if we accept the program. ~Walk in Dry Places

I don't like hearing that you feel fragile, I know that feeling and it sucks. You are loved.

Hi Scott.
Just remember 6 years ago.

It looks like a still
from a film version of
a Stephen King novella.

Once again I bow to your
understanding of the AA
way.

That shopping cart looks lonely, too.

I have felt fragile lately too. It is not that I'm about to break but that something inside is unsettled and may be chipped.

this shopping cart is interesting to me.

i was having a facebook conversation with an old friend. she shared some sad news with me and i told her a story about a shopping cart incident.

i started writing the story for a blog post (still in draft).

i had to check the date of that email, it started on 11/12 with my last response to her on 11/17.

and i come over here and see this shopping cart. universe is so small sometimes isn't it?

you are beautiful.
