Getting that unexpected call during the night made my heart pound. I instantly began to wonder what was wrong. The voice on the other end of the line was sobbing uncontrollably. My chest tightened. “I’m so sorry mommy. I am so sorry. I can’t stop mom. I can’t.” My heart sank. Terror filled me. My … More Just One More Drink
Here’s a bit of story, a little jaunt down memory lane, showing that God knows more than we do and that He has plans in place. This tale was from around 20 years ago. It was while we were living in Ohio, before we moved to Florida. We had traveled down for vacation and stayed … More When A Plan Comes Together….
Well here it is, here I am. I have been struggling with a dark cloud. A very deep, very dark depression – not to the point of suicidal thoughts (well nothing I felt I was going to act on).

Today we could certainly use a trained monkey to help us out. Michael took out the video drone to relax after knocking out some pretty intense lessons in school, unfortunately it had a mind of its own and took off for a tree! Michael’s creativity and determination in rescuing the drone was unparalleled. I have … More Trained Monkeys Needed!
Dear God, Today as I was reflecting on my life, I can see where you have always been there – fighting for me. It is amazing to think about the times that I was so angry with you, I thought I hated you. I thought you hated me. Why else would you have allowed these … More Dear God
For the past month or so I have been trying to do some soul searching. See, over the past few months I have tried to start reaching out socially in new areas (not new-new, but new since I got sober).
