I was waiting for the Queen Ann pic. It's a CLASSIC !

Yes indeed, a good time was had by all. Imagine... finding some rock solid recovery people and saying to yourself "I would LOVE the chance to spend some time with her, to learn more about her life, to talk recovery etc."

Well, that's pretty much how our time was spent. We didn't talk recovery all the time, and it certainly wasn't serious all the time (as evidenced by a few of the pics that have been posted.) We DID spend a lot of time talking about our lives ~past and present~and meatloaf and purses and gastrointestinal issues and killer dragon flies. We walked on the beach (some of us are quicker walkers than others...) and were awestruck by the beauty and vastness of the ocean.

And we shopped.

It was all good.

Hugs,

Cats



It's such a blessing to be able to spend

I was somewhat hesitant to post my thong picture, (ya all know how a thong makes your hips look big) but here goes:

Obviously I am computer challenged. Last night I sat at the computer trying to resize my picture of Ann, the "Queen of Whine" and the picture of Mooselips in her fabulous thong. Boy, does that girl know how to wear a thong or what! Anywho, for the life of me I couldn't resize a picture. Got SO aggravated, but then had to "let it go". Hmm, wonder where I've heard that before.

So stay tuned, ladies and germs. I WILL post some pics tonight of something beautiful, silly or just plain stupid cause we hit on all three and we LOVED IT!

Hugs to all,
Hangin' In

Just have to let you all see Ann's interpretation of the huge 6 foot wing span and fangs of the Dragonflies...:

Bless Ann's heart. The dragonflies I saw were 2 inches at best. But we do grow things big in the south, so maybe she just saw a huge one that got by me ... But her impression of the killer dragonfly is priceless and a bit scary.

Did we mention that Moose just kept begging and begging and begging us to please let her perform her sychronized swimming routine? As you can see, she was sitting on ready! (We had to explain to her that professional synchronize swimmers do not have those straps attached to the nose plug. But I think she was just so afraid she'd lose her nose plug and end up with water up her nose!)

Now I really hate to bust these gals' sweet and innocent images, but I just have to be honest. On the trip to the Fountain of Youth, well they were just out of control. Obviously these girls weren't content to drink the water that had already been poured for them. OOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, they just had to go beyond the fence to get their own!

Regarding this pic, Moose was hollering, "I can't sit on this thing for very long. SNAP THE PICTURE!!!!"

I really did have fun with my new crown. When the girls acted up I could put it on and announce that I AM THE QUEEN and they'd all just humour me and bow and treat me like royalty

Who knew a few years ago that we who came here as broken people, people who forgot what it was like to laugh and who lived our lives in fear...who knew we could find people who understood us and who would become friends for life?

One of the finest gifts of recovery are the beautiful people in my life today who walk the path with me sharing their light. And I am grateful.

Hugs

Right back at 'cha, Ann!

I never knew I'd hang out with a queen, a moose, a cat in pj's and jodyhepler (who does something that has to do with the law ... or does she just play that role on SR??? )

Six years ago I had no clue as to the gift my HP was about to give me. And I can apply that same thinking to my entire life now, thanks to recovery. I remind myself that if He provided the gift of these friends through my recovery, there are probably more gifts around the corner.

And I can look at my AD, or my other daughter for that matter, and realize I do NOT know what kind of gift their HP has in store for them, but I know He has them in His care.

The trick to all of this is that I have to keep working on me, working my program. My HP, through the 12 step program, has restored me through the changing of my thinking. Stinkin' thinkin' used to be the name of the game with me, but through recovery my HP has shown me a better way to think.

As I look back I had no idea what my HP was about to do in my life when I crawled into the rooms of SR. As one of my friends say, "I came into recovery on a stretcher." I feel the same way. And the folks here at SR were waiting on me, reaching out and were so kind to share their experience, strength and hope. I will never be able to repay them, but what I can do is share my experience, strength and hope for the next person who comes crawling in. What a privilege!

Hugs to all my SR family,
