Well, here we are, you and me. Nothing else is new. My mother is in long term care and is waiting to die. She is in a 2 person room and prefers to have her curtain completely pulled around her. And she lays there in bed.

My son has been playing video games for 15 years. He is briefly interrupted by meals and compulsory school commitments. He attends to his screen and blows things/people up and that is what he does.

I go to work and put reports together. The reports go to the government and report that people are ill enough to need our medical care. The more that I complete, the better my day.

What do you do?

Escape theTurkey Torpor!

The day started off great with a morning meeting. It felt very loving this morning, I always say that they are my family but it was ever so much closer this morning. There are some people who are out there and we can basically only pray for those active in the illness, the sick and suffering.

My son went to a young people's meeting and, for that, I'm grateful.

I am making a new friend in program and, for that, I'm grateful.

This morning before the meeting started, the woman next to me were talking and I had a huge realization. It was that large parts of me still hurt but I dropped a large burden as I drank in a healthy part that she shared with me.

I am healed through other's sharing but I haven't experienced it for a long time.

Miracles in God's world if I do the footwork. Excuse me, now, I need to take something away from the dog!

Oh My Gosh, I've Been Gone a Month

I've been here, lurked a little but otherwise ocuppied. I can't really explain it, just dropped off the radar awhile.

Anyway . . .

Puppy has just grown overnight, she looks bigger, she runs faster, is easier to manage in the bathroom department. And has gotten WILD. She jumps up in the air, flies around and in circles. And was actually barking at my other dog today. He was wagging his tail all the time while trying to act disapproving.

My 18 year old man-child called from a police dept early Friday morning because he had been charged with poss of weed with intent to distribute. I went to my meeting at 7am, asked for help and we went up to bring him and the car home. To lawyer up, or not? Local opinion is, yes. To get private attorney or court appointed? What do you old hands think?

That's enough for this post.

What's good about today is that I will be lead by my faith and not my fear.
