Tonight I pray for the people in the path of the hurricaine. Please keep them safe. I also pray for the sick and suffering addicts/alcoholics inside and outside the rooms of recovery.

Hey Sam,
Sounds like you haven't been feeling so good lately. Your higher power will answer those prayers for you. Just keep the faith and stay strong. I'll pray for you, too. Monday is a pretty special day for you, huh? Have a great weekend.

Dear Higher Power,
Please be with Sam. Keep her safe and healthy. Relieve some of the burden she is feeling and let her know that she will be just fine. Also, please be with me and help me to make healthy decisions. Help me to let go of this anger I feel toward Jeff. It's too early for me to be in a relationship, anyway. I suppose that's why you showed me his true colors. Thank you for showing me the truth before any deeper feelings evolved. Remind me daily that I don't need a man to be whole!
Amen

Smile Hello, SherBear5104!!

I am okay, just my liver acting up and me not getting enough sleep!! Thanks for caring!! Yeah Monday is going to be awesome!!

Dear Higher Power,

Please let things go well with the blue card tomorrow; and please let me definitely have this job at Whataburger. Please help Russell not to go out and blow all of the money tomorrow or this weekend. Please help me be nicer to everyone especially Russell, Kazy, and Tiger!! Please keep Hurricane Ivan away from Florida & my brother and his family; and away from Virginia & my mama, Dalton, and Kayla. Please help me get a good night's sleep and help me wake up refreshed tomorrow. Please help me get started on my fourth step so that Carmen and I can get busy with my fifth step. Please guide my thought process, my fingers typing, and my words when I email some step work to Bernadett. Thank you for another day clean and sober!! Amen!! Love, Samantha

Glad to hear your ok, Samantha

Here's some flowers. May they bring a smile to your face!

Dear Higher Power,

Please be with Ted as he is struggling with this disease. Be with Everett while he is in jail. Open his mind back up so he can see that there is help for him. Let him know that he never has to use again, and he can live a better life. Be with my friends in Ft. Myers, and keep Ivan away. Keep them and Samantha's family safe.

Amen

Hello, ya'll!! They changed my antidepressant so I can have a sex drive again and a little less weight gain and they up my dose from 100 mg to 200 mg on my trazadone so that I can maybe get some restful and decent sleep. I pray that everyone is doing God's, not theirs, will today!! Love, Samantha

Hello family,
I pray that God may spare the life of my friend, KiKi, who decided to go back out. He is in surgery right now for the beating he endured yesterday morning. If it is neccessary for him to leave this life, please comfort his family.

Let me turn this thread into a confessional for a moment, rather than a gratitude list. I confess that I haven't read all the posts like I usually obsessively do. So if I seem out of touch, it's because I am!

I am grateful, however, for Sherry and Sam keeping this thread going; for my rockin' home group; for my sister-in-law Hilary; and much more!

I am also praying for Sherry's friend KiKi, and for my friend in treatment.

Love to all, Eddie :rose

My prayers are for KiKi's family as he did not survive the blow to the head from a baseball bat. He used to say that if he went back out, he would end up dead because he had already been in jails and institutions. I hate this disease!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also pray for Ted, his sister, Eddie, and Sam. Watch over my friends and myself. Keep us away from the devil. Let us keep the desire to stay clean strong. Watch over us.

Thanks Eddie,

What a reality check it was for me. I just saw him about 4 weeks ago. He relapsed 3 weeks ago, and now he is gone. It just made me see that this disease really can kill you quickly. I know I have another run in me, if I chose, but I may not have another recovery. I think I'll stay in recovery and not play with the devil.

so true.

only 3% of active addicts dont die of an o.d or drug related crime.

its not worth finding out if youre part of that 3%.. cause the chances are slimmm

My bedtime prayer is for the sick and suffering out there and in the rooms.

I pray that I never forget the things I've been through in active addiction.

I pray that God will keep Eddie, Sam, Tobstah, and all my friends at SR safe.

Sherry
