DRINKING ALCOHOL TAUGHT ME HOW TO FLY THEN IT TOOK AWAY THE SKY
Thursday, March 11, 2010
Now and then, I get a bit mushy and reflect on the wonderful gifts which God has given to me. I am grateful for many things--among them:
Music, which lifts me from this worldly world
Singing in the Choir at St Ann Church
Art--all genre, all form, all color
I will get to "ride" to my meeting tonight
It is my "home group" meeting (Thursday)
I am librarian for this group
Never figured I'd be proud to be a librarian
I will tell my weekly joke tonight to about 200 people
They will laugh
Laughter is good
I use my computer for God's sake!
I have several 'families'
Prayer Girl and our children is one dear family
My early 7 AM meeting is my other dear 'family'
Other AA meetings I love
You bloggers--Yessss!--are also my 'dear' family.
I love all my families
My families love ME!
I wear a beautiful solid gold cross
Daily Reflections (A.A. Readings)
Anthony De Mello (Author)
The Cloud of Unknowing (Book)
A roof that does not leak
A toilet that does
A wide TV screen
That I don't watch TV
Knowing how to pray
Learning how to meditate
My contact with God as a Friend
Do not ANYONE who reads this think that I am not grateful--in the extreme!
That's about enough for now--more to come...tomorrow? Before signing off for this Thursday night, I've GOT to tell you all:
I am most peaceful, most serene, most happy, most thankful, and I know that God is close to me--at these moments in front of my computer. This is whether I'm reading you, blogging, commenting, Emailing--and/or praying with you. I love you.
Sober 36 years (March 18, 1974), I am a former symphony violinist who loves prose, poetry, drawing, music (of course!) art of many genres and philosophies.
Here I will write about my life, thoughts, addiction recovery, and almost anything else of which I know very little.
Laughter, happiness, peace, enthusiasm and love shape my life these days.
If you enjoy reading my stuff, please be welcomed here.
If you do not enjoy, please be nice and leave the room quietly--grin!!
