repost: calling all angels

Mallards For Us is honest with herself:

I’ve had enough. Two days of drinking. None of which I enjoyed. Alone, dark, dreary, desperate, hopeless drinking. I’m not sure if I was trying to prove something to myself, I have no idea what exactly went wrong. I do know, however, that I have a lot more to learn, and most likely many more people to meet that will help me on this journey.

Yeah, I think a number of us can easily relate to her situation. Or are perhaps right there, right now. I’m grateful we take this one day at a time. Maybe your one day could be this day.

About greg w

I believe chocolate in virtually any configuration is the finest dessert in the history of mankind. I believe my wife is the sexiest woman in the world. I believe modern capitalism will never be replaced by a different -- or better -- form of economics. I believe in clutch hitting in baseball. I believe the Kimber 1911 .45 ACP is the finest handgun ever made in America. I believe the Mossberg Flex 500 pump-action 12 gauge shotgun is the best home defense ever made in America. I believe Tom Waits is the best songwriter of my generation. I believe unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers. As CS Lewis once beautifully wrote, I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. I believe that, on balance, Christianity has done more good for humans than bad. I believe it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant, With that being said, I believe there is a profound difference between knowledge and wisdom. I believe if I yell at the TV during a Colts game, they will play better. Finally, I believe I am in long-term recovery from a number of deep-seated issues that supported and drove my addictions.
