WOW, What Feedback!!

I'm amazed and grateful for all the feedback from my last post. Even though I hadn't blogged in a long time, people still came, read, commented, and encouraged me. This can only be a God-thing because what I usually do when I blog is visit other bloggers and comment so they will visit my blog.

In other words, I try to make sure I get read. But I didn't do that this time, and I got read anyway. Even though I hadn't blogged for weeks. You'd think people would get tired of checking in on my blog when there was nothing new. Instead, I had four comments, as many or more than I usually get...

So it is indeed my time to be creative, to give back, to serve in a different way... to write, to share, to use this gift I've been given. To stop worrying if I'm doing the right thing by not concentrating on making money, especially in this global climate of fear... But just for today, I don't need to worry, I only need to trust that I am taken care of right now, in this moment... I am loved, I am worthwhile, I am well on my way to recovering from the family disease of alcoholism...

FYI: I did not take this photo. It is a MS sample. However, it represents how things looked on Thursday when I was driving to an Al-Anon meeting, the same morning I woke up to fog.

I totally understand all that you write here. I am a media arts designer, and besides my day job I have taken on some freelance work. Plus I am focused on my health right now. I have not blogged in a while . . . but this trust you speak of, and this love, it is so beautiful. May your road to recovery continue to present you with all of these wonderful gifts and experiences . . . and much more!
