every Friday write a short story, poem or limerick
of 55 words, no more, no less and report
back to the G-man!!!

"Life is too short to wallow in anger,
self- pity, distrust and fear are a danger
To live life to it's fullest, is truly a test
of faith, hope and strength to truly be blessed.
Life's full of miracles, one day at a time
recovery's a process to trust with my heart,
my blessings divine."

Here ya go Mr. Know-it-All!! Hope I counted correctly. here goes my gratitude list 5 things;
1. today i am grateful for Chic Mama for giving me the primo award!! lovely piece of art.
2. today i am grateful for JROTC in High School, my "A's" team won her meet tonight!!
3. today i am grateful for the time i have spent with my little girls, playing with them in quarantine has bonded us even closer.
4. today i am grateful for protein shakes, with fruit and yogurt, nice little treat.
5. today i am grateful for my health, my recovery and my life.
6. today i am grateful for some humility, i so desperately need with Wes, so we can resolve some issues.

i hope you all have a wonderful weekend, i hope to check out and leave some comments this weekend, i don't usually have time to blog on the weekends but i try to stop by and see how the rest of my cyber community is doing. i hope to hit a meeting tomorrow and will send out an update on my girls as soon as possible. as for today's thought;
"Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege of doing so too."- Voltaire

Touching and heartfelt 55. Recovery is [at least for this alcoholic] a leap of faith. It feels good most days. On days it doesn't, I'll remember your words. Thank you.

Take a gander at my 55 for the week.

What an excellent 55! Congratulations on your new Award, and on making the most of your time with your kids during quarantine---I've been thinking of you and still wishing a good recovery from that scare.

I **love** Voltaire; great choice for a quote today too.
