You were there when I needed you. You stood above all of the others with your strength and you guided me. To each of you I offer my being, my love and all that I am.


—Deidra Sarault


Each of us is guided while we act as guides to one another, throughout the day, throughout our lives. We are interdependent. Everywhere we look, someone is learning from us and we from her. We often know not what we give, when we give it. And we seldom realize the value of what we're receiving at the time we accept it.

Resistance to what another person is offering us may be our natural response. But the passage of time highlights the value of the experience. We can look for the comforters in our lives. They are there offering us strength and hope enough to see us through any difficulty.

We need both the rough times and the soft shoulders of a friend. They contribute equally to the designs our lives are weaving. The rough times press us to pray, to reach out to others for solace. And our pain gives others the chance to heal our wounds. We are all healers offering strength. And we all need healing.

One of the greatest gifts of my recovery is giving and receiving strength.

I wake up feeling anxious, missing my friend, but less depress, sober , and a new day to heal.

24 hrs. more for this sick inactive alcoholic.

hugs for those struggling, and hugs for those having a good day.

It was a close one. My husband was drinking which made it a little harder. But i just kept on thinking how awful i would feel if i drank, especially if i didn't make it all the way though January. That helped a lot.
Another 24 on the way.

Love Always, even if you don't feel like it <3

Great job thinking it through, Meshelly. so proud of you.
