I am grateful today...

What a difference a coupla days can make! My alcoholic car got weller, so it is working great now! I was really bummed without wheels. I went to the Alano Club today and talked recovery and had some laughs with some of the regulars that go there daily for coffee and chat. Many of the people in the local area refer to the Alano Club as an "armpit." Sometimes it can be like a bar without the alcohol. Recovering Alcoholics gone wild! Hmmm, another video opportunity? HAHA! I enjoy the Alano Club, so I am part of the "armpit." Perhaps someday I'll grow out of the "armpit" and branch out into a franchise. But I belong there, with the rest of the crazies, and the occasional homeless people that wander in off the streets.
Today, I'm grateful for a roof over my head, a car that runs, auto insurance, AA and my friends in it, food in the cupboards and freezer and fridge. Let's not forget Moose Tracks ice cream!! I am grateful for the blog community and those bloggers that email to make sure I'm on my best behavior. I have a willingness to let God run my life just for today, and so far, my God is a rocker!! With that said, I'll put on some old time rock and roll, the kind of music that soothes the soul....Wishing you all another 24!! Ok, Buh bye!!

I couldn't have said it better. I was there tonite, & it felt good to be 'home'. I enjoy going in about 11:30 for coffee & chat with the regulars, then hitting a nooner meeting. I went there tonite, which I don't do very often, but I was depressed & a couple of special friends were there that lifted my spirits. You were one, Roy, & Robert & Av are. A few of my friends still drink, & that's ok, I still love them just the way they are. If they want to quit, I will be here for them, but if not, I still am. Anyway, the old feeling of loving my fellow alcoholics came back. It went away for awhile, I'm grateful it's back. I'm glad you're feeling better. Amazing what friends & gratitude can do for you isn't it? I got a good dose myself tonite. Thanks Roy for your blogs.

Love Sharon
