  • True Tolerance

    Tuesday, September 21, 2010 | A Positive story

    This just felt like something important to keep in my journal where I will hopefully never lose it  the sharing like a meeting yet we are all 3 of us each 1000 miles away from each other.  Gotta love this information highway and connection without having to be in the same space-time continuum.... Love you guys so much.... thanks for keeping me sober tonite  because you checked in f...

  • Recovery from Abuse & Trauma

    Wednesday, June 8, 2011 | A Positive story

    I know that I passed on some of my abuse to my children before I became aware of what happened to me and began recovery from my abuse as a child.
    I don't know if this suggestion will anger you or help you. I hope you choose the later and give it a try. This is meant in all the love and experience I have of 20 plus years of working on myself to become who God intended me to be an...

  • My troubled week

    Monday, September 26, 2011 | A Positive story

    I’m mad at myself. I’m annoyed, frustrated, angry, upset at what’s going on in my life, in the past week. So what’s it all about?
    I’m annoyed at not being able to work through what I need to work through. I’m annoyed at the system not caring enough, even if they cannot help. I’m annoyed at not having any support growing up. I’m annoyed at having...

  • Happy 2014!

    Wednesday, January 1, 2014 | A Positive story

    Just back from a jog -- 10 minutes and then I walked for five -- and jogged another 10.
    That's not bad for me!
    Hope everyone on daily strength is having a wonderful day. Weather couldn't be better in Va: Clear and 51! Can't beat it.
    Happy new year all!

    I want to say I had a good day! 
    Played with my grand niece who's 5 and her "sister" BFF. They stayed at my folks house and I helped tend to them while my nephew and his wife took in the sites.
    That was just what I needed to distract me. These kids play all the time and make little messes. I just cleaned up after them all weekend long.
    And it was a blast!!!!

  • Love Oldies but Goodies -- Musically Speaking

    Tuesday, January 6, 2015 | A Positive story

    Was driving back after Christmas and pulled into a Flying J on the way home when the gas light came on.
    You may not know this, but Flying J always has the cheapest gas in my state. It is also a truck stop I noticed, complete with showers adjacent to the bathrooms, but I digress.
    They had a bin of CDs near the register and I couldn't help myself. I had an hour left to go and I was bored and needed...

    Life is getting better!  Just managed to get through changing cars - previous was lease which ran out.  Had a relative making the payments for me, but he quit.  Now I have an older car, but it is totally mine, with no payments required.  
    Also had to replace my fridge.  But managed to scrape up enough for that.
    AND - for the past 7 days the pain of my torn ankle tendon ha...

  • 30 Days of Gratitude: Days 3, 4, and 5 (I think)

    Friday, April 17, 2015 | A Positive story

    Day 3 - My car and here's why: It runs. 
    One of my favorite songs by Neil Young could really be a tribute to my 2006 Hyundai. 
    Here are the lyrics:
    "Long May You Run"
    We've been through
    some things together
    With trunks of memories
    still to come
    We found things to do
    in stormy weather
    Long may you run.
    This sums it up.
    Day 4 - My job and here's why. It pays my bills and even funds (somew...
