Moving started at 9:30 this morning (Fri., 4/1), right after the walkthrough! I brought a few things in, then headed to work. Afterwards, I grabbed my bed and a few items from the old place, and I'm staying in my new home tonight. It is SMALL, especially after getting some furniture inside! But it will be cozy, I think.
No Internet access as of yet, that won't be available until mid-April, so I'll be phone-blogging for a little bit. Oi. But at least it can be done!
I think about where I am at now, and I realize that just over two-and-a-half years ago, I was trying to die. I never once thought that I could recover to the point I am at now, it was an impossibility as far as I was concerned.
I'm grateful today for this opportunity to continue to grow; to realize that there is more to Life than simply Birth and Death; that the purpose we have is only discovered and fulfilled on a daily basis, revealed to us only in a way that our Higher Power (whatever/whoever/however it may be) can itself learn to demonstrate its love, compassion, care, and concerns -- through us, with us, for us, and in us.
I would have never known this without the first spark of hope which was given to me by a recovery center, and then an activities group, then the friends I've gained through the activities group, and then AA (and other 12-step programs) and those I met there, and all the recovery stones I have gathered on this wide path of Spirituality.
I am grateful today -- to be alive.
I guess I should stop blogging and go get some chairs and cookwear. I keep forgetting basic necessities. Yikes.
It's gonna be a long night.
