Micro Fiction Monday

Welcome to Micro Fiction monday, where a photo tells a tale in 140 character (or less). Mine is below, once you've taken a moment to contemplate, reflect, write and post to your blog, visit Susan at Stony River to let us know you're out there. Lots of other micro writers will pop by for a read!


Sober Holiday Checklist:
We drove ourselves,
our sponsors are following quietly behind
and HP is looking over our shoulder.
We can do this!
(140)

The Holidays can present an especially dificult time for those folks in recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction. It's suggested that we always drive ourselves so we can leave if we grow uncomfortable. Take a sober friend, remember to pray and have faith. And, if after all those preparations, you still don't feel comfortable going to Holiday parties where there will be drinking, you can ALWAYS find a sober gathering of friends in AA. Hit a meeting and ask around! The Holidays can be some of the best, most sober times in our lives, even as recovering alcoholics.

Solstice party,(Tues.) and Christmas Eve

Yeah. It is a difficult time for those fighting the fight... and for those who feel they must watch over them, just hoping they get through.
