Don't Quit PART 2
It is necessary to open PART 2 of the 'Don't Quit' thread because it has become too long for our system to cope with.

I really hope you will all continue to share your stories of recovery on this thread and to always remember Wingsfree/Denise who brought us this thread which is full of wonderful memories.

Here's a link to the original thread:

Don't Quit.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit—
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is odd with its twists and turns,
As everyone sometimes learns.
And many a person turns about
When an individual might have won
had he or she stuck it out.
Don't give up though the pace seems slow—
You may succeed with yet another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than it seems
To a faint and faltering woman or man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he or she might have captured the victor's cup;
And one learned too late when the night came down,
How close he or she was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out—
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And when you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit—
It's when things seem worst, you mustn't quit

Take care everyone, keep strong, and smile, I'm smiling at all of you, we are all in this together.

Love and extra hugs........Denise

Happy Mother's Day right back at ya!!! Hope you had a good one!

(((Kevin))) I often have the Monday morning blues. Tomorrow, however, I have the day off!!! Big time yay!

2dayzmuse 05-14-2006 08:39 PM

What a strange Mother's day. I spent the day alone. It really wasn't as bad as it sounds. Yesterday my sister's and I spent the day over at my Mother's helping her move. She must be out of her house in June and we were helping her move furniture and heavy items into storage. My son came over to help, so in a sense, we had our Mother's day yesterday.

My daughter is being a very large pill and continues to act like a unreasonable teen. I tried to call her several days in a row and she failed to return my calls. In return, she missed out on our family day. She called me at 9:00 PM last night wanting to know what we planned for today, nothing. We had no plans for today. She was snotty and typical and ended up spewing Happy Mother's day sarcastically and hanging up. She didn't like my line of questioning of her bad behavior I have been hearing about, so that was her way of dealing with it. Children are a blessed thing. I hope she snaps out of her mode soon. She has a long was to go to get past her rebellion, defiance and poor choices.

I enjoyed the day relaxing and getting some necessary errands done. I had an opportunity to go to dinner with friends, but preferred staying at home and relaxing. I don't know if I am isolating or if it is warranted. I'm a little sore from the heavy lifting yesterday. I say it was a well deserved day of relaxation. Tomorrow is another day...not quitting.

Not quitting today

Yes Laura it was just a touch of Monday Morning...

360 Days.


Cathy31 05-15-2006 04:06 PM

Hi Everyone,

Not quitting today...actually just off to glad to be clean and sober, just back from a really awesome meeting.

2dayz, sorry about your daughter...but it sounds like you are handling it really well, she is so lucky to have you...but of course she'll only realise this in her twenties as most of us daughters do! :)


Little Missy 05-16-2006 05:46 AM

Welcome to the bus ((Cathy)) Glad you are here.

((LeAnne)) Sounds like relaxation was well deserved!! UGH to teens!!

((Kevin)) Glad you are feeling better.

Saturday, I was wondering if Mother's Day meant I was suppose to spend the day with my kids, or if I got the day off!! They were much better on Sunday and we had a nice day.

We got patio furniture for Mother's Day/ Our 7th Wedding Anniversary. Too cold and rainy yet to use it. Can't believe he has put up with me for 7 years. LOL

Have a great 24 ((All))
