Time goes by

I have to say that I haven't had a lot of down time. I start my mornings at around 5:30 am and I don't get to crawl into bed until midnight. I am not complaining. But it makes time fly so fast.

It's hard to believe we are pushing into the middle of October. The year just started the day before yesterday. I hate the thought of the holidays just around the corner. I can't believe that my baby is going to be 10 next month.

I digress. Since all the issues with my house it seems like I am going, running, doing every minute of the day. I have so much to take care of it seems that there is no end in sight. Working for my partner has made it that much more difficult to find down time.

But I have to say I am fortunate to have such high class problems. I have more than one roof over my head, I have food on my table and I want for nothing. I could use a little more sleep but I have a loving family, my spirituality and my sobriety.

I am fortunate to know that I can no longer do drugs and drink. I am lucky to be able to look at my family and know that I will not put them through that again. I do not like who I become. Neither do they.

I am so fortunate.


  1. I'm glad all is well. I miss seeing you around the center; maybe you can join us for breakfast on a Sunday.

  2. When I start whining or my husband starts complaining, we look at each other and say, "We have water.". This is a reference to our 10 days without water or electricity when Hurricane Fran came through in 1996. It reminds us that we really don't have problems if we have water and electricity. I, too, was looking at how much I need to do and how little is getting done. Time to stop, breathe, meditate, and start over. Loved the post today. It hit home.

  3. Thanks for the reminder to keep it in gratitude.

  4. thank you for the reminder of how lucky we are.

  5. These are busy times. But your gratitude comes shining through. Glad that things are going well.
