I'm back to posting. I just finished a three week holiday in Scotland off line; I ignored the news as well. Had a great time but glad to be home.

The joy of life is in the giving. Being freed of my shortcomings, that I may more freely be of service, allows humility to grow in me. My shortcomings can be humbly placed in God's loving care and be removed. The essence of Step Seven is humility, and what better way to seek humility than by giving all of myself – good and bad – to God, so that He may remove the bad and return to me the good
I read this, this morning and it make sense to me, and all start for me when I ask for help in quit doing drugs and getting drunk now I feel like I'm becaming the person tha I was to be.
Now please let's do another 24.

Congratulations, Milestoners. Wow!!!!

10:02 a.m. - in for another 24 of the goodness that sobriety offers.

Not feeling too well today with some bronchial congestion so just a quick check-in.

Be well, be loved, be happy all.

Go soberly.

Welcome! Sometimes posting a new thread on Newcomers is buggy -- a work-around is to give it a one-word title, post it, then edit the title after (within 15 minutes).

grtgrandpa – thoughts for you every day

Teotihuacán is the city where many of the gods of Mesoamerica like the plumed serpent and the goggle-eyed storm god were first carved with obsidian knives, more than 1500 years ago.


Some people consider this mural to be full of cosmological symbolism, but it’s really up to your imagination because no one knows what the artists of Teotihuacán were thinking. Maybe it’s just a bunch of fellas going for a swim!


I’ll see you here tomorrow, I hope!
