Back for another 24 The next few days the average temp is going to be 104. I have some projects planned for the girls to keep us busy and cool. I'm going to try hard to not get cabin fever. It is going to be too darn hot to even spend time at the pool.

Not saying we're all superheroes or anything but if we had cloaks ........
I love this....we are most definitely superheroes.

Good morning my amazing and wonderful people.
I couldn't sleep last night, my brain talks very negative about me, still sad and sparkless.
But hey I'm sober I get alone with my kids and grandkids what a blessing. I got roof over my head and today is good because is raining here
Life at life terms eh!!!
24 more for this alcoholic ".............." that needs more.


Thought for the Day


In A.A. we have three things: fellowship, faith, and service. Fellowship is wonderful, but its wonder lasts just so long. Then some gossip, disillusionment, and boredom may come in. Worry and fear come back at times and we find that fellowship is not the whole story. Then we need faith. When we're alone, with nobody to pat us on the back, we must turn to God for help. Can I say "Thy will be done" - and mean it?

Meditation for the Day


There is beauty in a God-guided life. There is wonder in the feeling of being led by God. Try to realize God's bounty and goodness more and more. God is planning for you. Wonderful are His ways -- they are beyond your knowledge. But God's leading will enter your consciousness more and more and bring you ever more peace and joy. Your life is being planned and blessed by God. You may count all material things as losses if they prevent your winning your way to the consciousness of God's guidance.

Prayer for the Day


I pray that I may earn the rewards of God's power and peace. I pray that I may develop the feeling of being led by God.
