Saturday, 5/2/09 - "IT DOESN'T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS!"

(The view from my little beach chair)

"IT DOESN'T GET MUCH
BETTER THAN THIS!"


Non-stop quality Alcoholics Anonymous speakers, one right after another....it doesn't get much better than this!

Being with hubby and friends in an oceanside location, gorgeous weather, comfortable accommodations...it doesn't get much better than this!


Being reminded of what I believe - that God gave me the precious gift of sobriety and I took hold of that gift firmly and have not let go, no matter what...it doesn't get much better than this!


Spending 2 1/2 hours listening to a speaker talk about the AA traditions and loving and agreeing with every minute of that talk...it doesn't get much better than this!


Hearing that the steps lead us to service and knowing that the more I give away, the more I keep and then receive even more. This fills me with gratitude, hope, and love...it doesn't get much better than this!


Making myself take time to go sit for an hour on the beach listening to the waves crash onto the shore, watching the rows of foaming curling waves, feeling the breeze blow all around me and ruffle my beach umbrella, feeling the presence of God....it doesn't get much better than this!

Using this alone time surrounded by the majesty of the sea and sand and air, the sights, sounds, and smells, and allowing God's spirit to flow in and rejuvenate my spirit...it doesn't get much better than this!


Having these moments sitting under my umbrella on the sand to write this blog to friends I have developed though we've never met...yet...it doesn't get much better than this!

Signing off from Cocoa Beach...it doesn't get much better than this,

You are so right. It doesn't get much better than what you are experiencing. And the Traditions too--hope that you and Steve share on those and what you heard.
