first off thank you dear Bee!

i thank you all from the bottom of my childlike, grandiose, and emotionaly sensitive heart!

what a day of reflection it has been.

looking back on that day of hell over seven years ago, its still fresh in my memory, as if it were yesterday.

and damm grateful for it too.

what a roade seven years has been, life, death, a rotting out mouth, financial woes, and thats an understatement, and much much more, sheesh!

one of the things that kept me going foward was a thing called hope!

and if i can give just one person that in the same, my job has been well done.

we talk of the connection.

driving around this morning, for some reason Aysha (trish) came into my mind.

my plan (i hear you laughing G) was to come on here tonight, and take a gander if she was around.

and wa-lah!, POOF, she appeared!

if your ass falls off, put it in a wheelbarrow and bring it to a meeting, or whatever recovery program you do,

yep aunt dee,

even aunt tillies!

all good wishes, and keep giving that love

ps, the other trish (miracle)

grateful you shoved that big book up my ass!

and i know you are celebrating along here with us

Wow, how did I miss this???

Pattee, you have inspired me on days when I needed a jolt,
you have brought me smiles when I was Miss Crankypants,
you have touched my heart and shared your light
and are an important part of my recovery.

Congratulations, Zipperman, and thank you for all you bring to SR and to this whining Codie.
I KNOW Trish/Miracle is watching, I feel her presence here every single day.

Love you, Pattee. You make us all proud.
