I am out on the boat today which is no surprise. The old girl and I decided to build some sand castles this morning. Later, the tide washed away any trace. Today can be a clean sweep of things. I like that I can rebuild my spirit at any time.
Speaking of rebuilding one's spirit, check out a new blogger at Glimpses of Grace. He provides daily meditations in recovery as well as his photographs. It's good to have new bloggers.
There is still no phone service or Internet in the country. I am using the iPad on the boat to check blogs. But mostly, this is a weekend to renew. I am grateful that there are no immediate emergencies. My father-in-law is still in the hospital. He is slowly improving. C. is staying with her mother for several hours a day. The old dog Timmi is still wagging and maintaining.
There is a statewide DUI alert for the weekend. Four people were killed by drunk drivers last week. What an awful thing alcoholism is. I see so much damage from the disease. Some times I say that I am grateful for having been exposed to alcoholism. Then there are other times that I wish that I had not had that horror in my life. It is no good to look back and wish for what could have been. Today, I am glad that those I love are sober. That is enough.
