"TWAS THE DAY & NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS" and .........................

The day before the night before Christmas I had the blessing to meet a sponsee who hasn't called me in close to a year. She had called me a few days ago - out of the blue - and we set a date to do her 5th step. Then - there she was in a meeting and we went out to lunch together with two other women. What a wonderful Christmas gift.

I have completed 'most' of my Christmas shopping.
I have this last day to pick up a few last minute items.

I will purchase food for a Christmas meal.

Daughter and I are having a family Christmas at home. We're planning crab legs and shrimp for our special day luncheon. Can't wait! :)

The tree, the presents, the sweet smell of our bayberry candle, and a poinsettia I treated myself to - all fill the house with a festive glow.

Son and his wife will be arriving the Tuesday after Christmas and we'll get to celebrate again.

Doggie and kitty (Lucky and Bert) are getting along at least a little bit better today than when they first met several months ago.

I am choosing to focus on the beautiful memories of Christmases past and planning/choosing to have a blessed Christmas this year.

I am sitting here at the computer looking into our family room that was reorganized, rearranged, and redecorated by daughter. She is very artistic. She has done with this junk of a room what I could never have done myself. True, a lot of things are stored away or heading for Goodwill, but that's fine with me. I love the orderliness she has brought to the room. It is warm and inviting.

Prayer Girl is wishing you and yours a Christmas that will warm your heart, soul, and mind.

Love and peace,
Prayer Girl

I just found this blog and love the first few posts I read. I will catch up! I have been sober since December 16, 2008. This was my 2nd Christmas and much better than last year! I started a blog, too

I went to midnight Mass on Christmas Eve and it was just beautiful. Only my second mass to go to. Merry Merry Christmas!
