Well I’ve tried Twitter and found it boring, I’m just not the type to tweet. Facebook rocks but frankly I’m slow in thought and want a space to write how I feel to help me be “REAL” in this Journey which is my life.

So I am trying a blog, I’ve never thought I had much to say but now I’m giving it a whirl….heck if I enjoy a blog about toenail cutting due to the humor I must have something too.

Today’s lessons so far for me: remember to brush my teeth or my 4 year old will remind me, have a sense of humor with my limitations or my 6 year old will. God is using me even when I find it uncomfortable to be upfront and “REAL” He will make me.

I had the pleasure today to share my story of Alcoholism with a friend, I felt major physical pain at Physio therapy, held my daughter as she cried because I couldn’t pick her up, was overwhelmed in a parking lot because I couldn’t remember how to park…..it’s been a day to say the least.

And yet…..GOD put me in the position to share, to grow, to feel emotion and to feel Blessed that He is driving my bus and I’m not.

That’s it for my first post, to anyone who reads this please excuse all errors or confusing sentances but that’s just how I roll for the time being!!

    Thanks so much for your comment on my post, Please Pray. I'm leading a meeting again today, and your comment was exactly what I needed to get my focus back on what it needs to be about. Gratitude. Being thankful even for the hard things, because that's where we learn how strong we are becoming, with the help of the Fellowship and our individual relationships with our Higher Power, and with giving away what we have. I know your meeting will be awesome – I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers today. Let me know how it goes! I'm adding you to my blogroll,too. Blessings. xo, pj

    Hiya PJ and thanks for your comment here! I'll be praying for you today as you are back in focus ;)I found a writing from "As Bill Sees It" that you'll find interesting:Is Happiness the Goal?"I don't think happiness or unhappiness is the point. How do we meetthe problems we face? How do we best learn from them and transmitwhat we have learned to others, if they would receive the knowledge?"In my view, we of this world are pupils in a great school of life.It is intended that we try to grow, and that we try to help ourfellow travelers to grow in the kind of love that makes no demands.In short, we try to move toward the image and likenessof God as weunderstand Him."When pain comes, we are expected to learn from it willingly, andhelp others to learn. When happiness comes, we accept it as a gift,and thank God for it."LETTER, 1950

    Welcome to blogging. For me I have found it very therapeutic. Its easier for me to write about all of the thoughts in my head to a bunch of strangers rather then tell those I am close to… silly I know. Glad you found me :)

    After reading your post today (Nov 30, 2011) which reflects back on a older post, I had to come and read your very first post. It’s always nice to know how it all began.

    Thank you for blogging and thank you for liking twitter enough to keep using it! I’m so glad that I have met you! God is good!

    I’m a new blogger who has been sober since 1986. I write about being a disabled special needs mom and homeschooler but am wondering about throwing recovery into the writing soup. Its very hard for me to get to meetings because of my physical limitations. I am seeing more and more that writing is a way for me to process life and maybe help a few others. I am sober far longer than I used but processing some of the extreme things that have happened has been tough. I now recognize I have PTSD.

    I just wanted to see how you started….your blog is an inspiration!
