Monday 4/12/10 - "WORDLESS"
Now that I am feeling better I was ready to be able to concentrate on a blog. Well, I do have my focus back, but when it comes to writing a blog, for some reason my mind is "wordless". Some kind of block? I feel like the poor fellow above - all feet - not enough brain.
On a second brief thought, this may not be such a bad thing. It's not good for writing, but it has an upside. I am an over-analyzer, a thinker, a person whose mind sometimes just won't quit. Anyone reading this able to relate? It can be a big blessing to have it slow down. I am also a pretty serious person and it is good to lighten up.
The other day I happened to say to my sponsor, "My mind is blessedly blank." I feel discouraged that it is so difficult to come up with a blog, but I think I will just turn it around for today and say how grateful I am that my brain isn't in overdrive and there is a peace and serenity that is filling it at this moment.
I am off to the hospital shortly. I missed last week when I was sick. Each time I volunteer it is like a gigantic surprise. I never know what will happen, who I will see, what God will choose to do. One thing I am certain of, I will be blessed.
Love you all, Prayer Girl

I'm sober in AA since July 5th 1985, and a grateful member of Alanon since November 2004.
I joined the "blogosphere" in September, 2008.
In December 2011 I became a grandmother for the first time and now understand why it's such a big deal. I'm wildly in love again with that little guy.
