Once upon a time

Postby angel143 » Fri Jun 19, 2009 11:47 pm

I dont know if this belongs here, or if its appropriate...but hey...

Once upon a time, not long ago
I lost my way, no road home...

Try as I did, I could not find my way
Hoping to forget my love, my pain of yesterday...

Memories teased, tormented, tricked me into false eves
If only I could see a truth in all the lies...

Time took its sweet time in exorcising my inner pain
Never did I believe my pain would ease, fade away...

Now I see, now I believe
Drunkness on the past was the enemy...

For it stops one from prevailing in the here and now
Keeps one from understanding lifes whys and hows...

Faith in ones self is always the key
To unlock the door of harmony and serenity...

Do not underestimate the power hiding within you
For it provides the path and guidance to the true you...

Remember my love for you is forever withstanding
Believe in yourself and love will become everlasting...

Once upon a time, not long from now
You will find your way, your road home...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ......

I don't know WHAT was wrong with ME last night. I already took my night med which usually smacks me in the forehead in 15 minutes. I stayed up till 1:30 reading and typing. :roll: (don't get used to it :wink: )

Please forgive me if I said something "unusual" for me ... if you can figure out what THAT might be. :lol:

If I'da thunk it, I woulda made PB&J samiches for us !

Love y'all,
Tim1

Thanks Tim,

I had a bad habit, maybe addiction going on with PB&J... I had to give it up entirely, because I may have adapted an allergy to it.

Later, I read of the peanut butter problems... and wondered if I was just allergic to the trash that was getting into the peanut butter!

I can still eat Snickers though... so... who knows!

Nothing like a good Snickers bar and a cup of strong coffee... Unless, it's French Chocolate Truffles!!! :lol:

Popcorn is good too! And, twinkies...

It sure beats drinking whiskey and reading the personal stories in the back of the BB!!! When I couldn't get sober -- that's what I was doing. Drinking whiskey and reading the BB, trying to find out why AA wouldn't work for me! I searched and searched and searched... until one day I discovered the key to getting sober in Bill's Story, and in the Dr.'s Opinion. I honestly believe that this is why God finally gave me another chance at sobriety!!! I think that story is floating around somewhere here in the forum! :lol:

apparently I need to do some more searching of the forum! I haven't found that story! Would like to read it.

Does that mean you cant eat peanut butter cups? :cry: that would be sad.

But I have to say from a purely subjective standpoint....there are so many better things to eat than twinkies or snickers. (not a fan of either really)

Sober love fest! Go!

As former entertainment director of my AA club, (now I'm the secretary - borrring, but necessary) I did something like this.

There's music, of course.
Then, you put your right foot in, you put your right foot out.... :lol: Dance the night away!

Games are fun. Twister, charades, pictionary...

Food can be a theme: Mexican, Asian, Polish!

But, the best thing for a love fest is to put the names of everyone attending in a basket, and then everyone draw a name. You then write a "love letter" to that person telling them what you admire about them, something they may have said or shared that was meaningful to you or what they did that helped you.
Get creative! Be real. Be grateful. Laugh it up.

Then, those who would like to, may read the letter they've written aloud to the person whose name they've picked, or they may give the letter to the person to be read privately.

Lots of tears and laughter with this one!

And, the relationships that have formed as a result are wonderful to see.

Most of us never knew we had so many beautiful qualities, until others told us that they saw them in us.

Love you all! ( Where's the heart icon? :lol: )
