What's Good About Today . . .

I was comparing this impending cross country move to the one I made in 1993. That time, my only enduring thread was to my then employer. Other than my blood relatives, they were the only folks that knew me, knew where I was and what I was about. They knew me as much as I would allow them to know me.

Now, I'm in my middle adulthood. I've grown up here, courtesy of the Alanon meetings that welcomed me in 2001. They loved me into health. I can't say 'back' to health because I soared beyond any of my previous understandings. That lead to my daily open AA meeting that I have cherished for the last 4 years. That lead to my church affiliation and adult religious education that began Super Bowl Sunday 2010.

I'm connected now!! I have enormous gratitude for the influence of those who have loved, and yes, challenged me through these past years. My spiritual family will enlarge when I pursue these same fellowships when I move next month. What's good about today is that I feel increasingly at home in my life and that I will keep growing.


  1. To observe in posts the growth of another--you--is helpful to my growth--and there has been tremendous--well, maybe a little? grin!--growth in myself. I must admit these blogs have been an unexpected addition to my program of ups and downs (mostly ups!) is staying sober No Matter What!

    A new home for you. What opportunities await!

    I am pleased and fortunate to 'know' you, Carol. PEACE! (Especially in the moving!)

  2. And thanks for that photo high above the Bahamas...LOVE those!

  4. What GOLDEN opportunities await you--even though 'moving' is not the most pleasant of activities. You may get to carry the message into places--and to Peeps--like you've not yet even dreamed!

    Be still this moment.
