Thoughts and prayers for everyone over the next 2 days

Here in New Zealand it is Christmas eve.

I just wanted to let everyone know you and your alcoholic loved ones (drunk and sober) are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I am grateful my family has some recovery in it so our xmas day should be rather pleasant, but there have certainly been some in the past that have been spectacular disasters.

May God bless all of us and keep us safe.

Happy Xmas Eve, Lizw!
Let us be thankful for the progress we all have made and for the progress yet to come in the new year.

Thanks Ago for getting the picture up.
I though I got the pic in there. Lost in Space??

Here is another iconic image taken of Earth and the Moon together taken in 1992 by the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) spacecraft.


With You in control, He walks on the moon
With You in control, She walks in space
With You in control, I walk this recovery
And all walk toward the light so great
