I made it to the ship yesterday without any problems. It was a smooth drive, and I got all my gear on board. I met up with an old friend tonight for dinner. It was good to sit and talk about what's been going on in our lives and to reconnect after several months. He's been in AA for many years and is a good guy. He still has a degree of worry though that no longer plagues me like it used to. Now I just figure that all will be okay as long as I trust in my HP.

Today I'm grateful for:
  • Making it to the ship after a long drive
  • Knowing that the dogs are okay and that the old girl who is sick is still holding her own
  • Feeling content and peaceful
  • the fact that stress isn't something that owns me any more
  • my sponsor getting home after a long road trip
  • having friends around the world who write, read and care
  • having an interesting life that still has many promises yet to be fulfilled
I'll be writing more on this continuing saga.

  2. Glad you made it safely, Syd. I will continue to pray for your old girl.
