...HERE I AM !!!


I know I've been a bad blogger lately, and I'm gonna dedicate this post to Mary Christine who asked where I was ! I actually have been close to my computer on several occasions, but it seems that 'face booking' and MSN-ing are way more important to some teenagers than letting the mommy blog! Oh, and then there was the little deal with the flu that I had, I woke up on Saturday with a sore throat and swollen glands and just generally feeling like I'd been run over by a big truck... Fear not though friends, I have discovered that if I get up before the crack of noon, I get the compy all to self! So, as per my usual agenda, I offer to you todays Daily Reflection's reading, enjoy...

We in our turn, sought the same escape with all the desperation of drowning (wo)men. What seemed at first a flimsy reed, has proved to be the loving and powerful hand of God. A new life has been given us or, if you prefer, "a design for living" that really works.

Alcoholics Anonymous pg. 28

I try each day to raise my heart and hands in thanks to God for showing me a "design for living" that really works through our beautiful Fellowship. But what exactly, is this "design for living" that "really works"? For me, it is the practice of the Twelve Steps to the best of my ability, the continued awareness of a God who loves me unconditionally, and the hope that, in each new day, there is a purpose for my being. I am truly, truly blessed in the Fellowship.

Today I am grateful/thankful for the following..

  • to know that God loves me unconditionally
  • for baby cats and adult cats and a teenager that seem to love me unconditionally
  • to feel healthy today
  • AAngel has a job interview this afternoon
  • I have everything I need, and then some
  • to wake up knowing I can stay clean and sober for just one day
  • Big Brother 8 is on tonight..I love it!
  • for blogging and AA and all the wonderful people I've met
  • all of YOU !!!!

Gee Patricia, I was told that smiley from Smiley Central that you're using is not considered a smiley. I'm getting confused. Is it so?

One more thing, are you an affiliate of Smiley central? All I know is that they are free tool, so how come you're an affiliate?

Sorry for all the question, but please bear it with me. Your questions will be answered on my coming post. I shall sent you the link after it is finished. For now I needed some answer for the post, please.

Greetings and lotta loves from Malaysia.
