I'm hopeless with technology. That mobile phone anecdote of Venecia's could easily have been me :-)

Please don't include the words "easily" and "me" in the same sentence, okay?

Whoops - was that a correction of my grammar rather than my morals?

I'm beat. It's been a long day.

I wish all the Lapidaslanders well.

One of the things I cherish about SR is that we are here to support one another with a healthy mix of candor and hope.

Getting sober, and staying sober, is within our reach. All of us. Every single one of us.

It takes time to feel better. I wouldn't want to ever be pollyannaish with my fellow journeyers. It's not a walk in the park. Our minds and souls have been through a lot and it takes time.

For me, that time was fraught with uncertainty. Up to that point, my life hurt. It hurt badly.

I attribute my own sobriety and recovery to the fact that there were people here willing to share with me (and others) that there is reason to have hope. It is a process, one that prevails upon us to take a leap of faith.

I don't want to claim to be some sort of sobriety rock star. There's no such thing. But I will gladly take the baton and try to set the example others set for me, especially when it comes to hope.

Hope isn't a false, trite thing. It's very real.

Be hopeful. It will serve you well. We'll be here to support our newer journeyers when you need added hope.

Nope :-) Just after 3 pm in the afternoon. Sparkling water. Beautiful, sunny spring day. A bit chilly and windy, but we have a lovely sunny lounge.

That means a huge amount, Venecia. I very, very much appreciate that.

Thank you so much for the wise (as usual) words and thoughts, Venecia. You will sleep well tonight because you have the peace.

My pleasure :-)

So do you live in a relatively rural area? Just thinking....cos I can get alcohol 24/7 unfortunately. Not that I do late night runs, but it's always there, which doesn't help.
