Photo's were taken in June and July; my mom, Angel, Carter and me; Lady B and me, cattle in south central Nebraska.
O.k. Campers am back. I haven't had my own internet service up until yesterday. I have gone on line at work but only for basic stuff, work related resources and brief ventures onto FB. I have been busy enough this summer to not need internet at home. With the days getting shorter keeping me inside more I how have the time to blog again, plus need something more creative than watching rented movies to do in the evenings. I am keeping this post short since I am at Lady B's house watching Angel and just hanging out. Below is the website address to where I work, I am the Program Manager and will explain more about that later. I will say that I am still sober, didn't relapse, I am still able to walk on the middle road of interpeace and serenity 95% of the time, my relationship with Lady B and her family is solid, loving and a big part of my life. Angel and Carter are both doing well. Angel has entered the terrible 2's, she has an attitude plus, Karma for her mom cause Angel is just like Mich. Carter's health is fairly good, is immune system isn't very strong so Mich has to pay close attention to his breathing, he has been in the hospital a couple of times due to fluid in his lungs, plus he catches viruses easy. Mich is a roller coaster, I do my best to detach with love and help out here and there, I can't stop her from making mistakes or repeating mistakes, like all of us she has to learn on her own.
Well campers, you have all been in my thoughts and prayers and I hope all of you are rolling with the flow of life, finding acceptance in the unpleasent. I will write again very soon. Please go to www.v4f.org and check out the wonderful organization I work for.
I had over 9 years of soberity got compliancent and spent 10 years digging my way towards a new bottom, I put the shovel down November 2006 and am living a life full of love and happiness, I have found a new spiritual path in life and even though I feel like a fish out of water sometimes, I enjoy life to the fullest and leave the negativity for others. Started this blog as a means to post my ramblings or writings. Thanks go to Dylan for the blog name. I really believe that if in someway we aren't learning/being born from lifes experience then we are dying. Every day I can learn something if I have my eyes open and am aware the choice is mine. I am not a saint nor I am I a sinner, I am just you and you are me and we make mistakes but we also have a lot to be grateful for. I have a wonderful daughter and we have a good relationship today, I put her through hell with my drinking and thanks to recovery the wounds have healed. I also have 2 beautiful grandchildren which I write about often, once again being in recovery has allow me to be a big part of their lives, we have a strong and loving bond.
