Hey Danielle, it's nice to hear from you. Glad to hear that you are enjoying your new job. That's wonderful.

Today I am grateful that I have found a new family in the fellowship. It is so nice to actually feel like I belong. It's wonderful to have real friends. It's a blessing to be clean and sober one more day!!!

I pray everyone is having a wonderful day and that Eddie's mom is out of the hospital and recovering!!

Love ya'll....Sherry

I thank God for my small victories.And for SR and all of you on this forum.Especially this thread.
Good night and God bless you all.

Hi Richie, Eddie and Dani. It is a nice thing to not have to worry about the drug test anymore. Another one of the gifts of sobriety! I am grateful to be going for a job interview this afternoon. Prayfully I'll get it. I have to get back to work. It's been 10 months and I just can't take it anymore. I'll let ya'll know how it goes.

Sherry

Thank you, Richie. It went good. He just has to check my references and I could be working next week. I'm pretty sure that I have it. I am grateful that all went well, and if for some reason I don't get it, I will continue to look. It's time for me to be a productive member of society.

Tonight I am grateful that I was able to find the courage to be honest. I had a slip about 2 weeks ago, and I wasn't telling anyone. I was justifying that I knew it was wrong and only took a couple hits off the joint. One is too many, a thousand never enough. I came clean with my friends here, and with my sponsor. I didn't lose any of the knowledge, matter of fact, I gained a lot. I am grateful that I have a conscience today.

As I was walking down life's

highway many years ago

I came upon a sign that read

Heavens Grocery Store.

When I got a little closer
the doors swung open wide





And when I came to myself
I was standing inside.

I saw a host of angels.





They were standing everywhere

One handed me a basket
and said "My child shop with care."

Everything a human needed
was in that grocery store

And what you could not carry
you could come back for more

First I got some Patience.

Love was in that same row.

Further down was Understanding,
you need that everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of Wisdom
and Faith a bag or two.

And Charity of course
I would need some of that too.

I couldn't miss the Holy Ghost
It was all over the place.

And then some Strength
and Courage to help me run this race.

My basket was getting full
but I remembered I needed Grace,

And then I chose Salvation for
Salvation was for free

I tried to get enough of that to do
for you and me.

Then I started to the counter
to pay my grocery bill,

For I thought I had everything
to do the Masters will.

As I went up the aisle
saw Prayer and put that in,

For I knew when I stepped outside
I would run into sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful,
the last things on the shelf.

Song and Praise were hanging near
so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the angel

"Now how much do I owe?"

He smiled and said

"Just take them everywhere you go."

Again I asked "Really now,

How much do I owe?"

"My child" he said, "God paid your bill
a long long time ago."

Sorry about your slip. Don't forget to fix your clean date on the SR calendar and re-join us on the Party, party, party thread, OK? I need to visit that one myself actually. Love you, girl.

Hey Eddie and Richie. I haven't been on here in a few days, and my attitude shows it. I have been having a lot of things hit me all at once and wanted to sulk in self pity. I am grateful that God showed me this today and I do have a lot to be grateful for. I have been doing some reading and I am working on another first step. It was suggested that I rebuild the first 3 steps and it can't hurt. I'll go to the party thread, Eddie, and I did change my date. Good night everyone!

Thank you Richie! I'm sure those prayers add to the power that keeps my insanity at bay. There are still times where I just want to throw in the towel and say "screw it all", but a power greater than myself intervenes and gives me a moment of clarity and literally asks me "and exactly WHAT will that accomplish?" Absolutely nothing.
So, I pray for you as well, and for Sherry and Eddie. I hope you all have peace, serenity, and clarity everyday and every night.

Danielle
