When things are bad

They can always get worse. 1. My friends. They are wonderful caring people who open their arms and homes and phone calls to me 2. The programs of AA and Al Anon. Without those I’d be dead and lost. 3. Coffee 4. A good job. A great job actually. 5. My beautiful funny amazing girls […]

Struggles
