Well.....it's Day 528.......I haven't jotted down anything for a while........kinda got caught up in other things........bankruptcy, son's HS graduation..preparation for college. I don't have any desire to drink........I'm managing ok without it. I don't miss it. It is difficult having to try and find a job.......and I don't know how much longer I can hang on to this house. I am fortunate that my son's mother is independently wealthy.....although her pleas of poverty are becoming cumbersome...(I'm so broke......look at my new jet ski). I don't mind that so much as what she had to go through with the car accident was awful. At least he's taken care of for the moment with college and he starts at VCU in the fall. I do feel terrible because I'm not contributing much.........

He has a clean dad - That is worth all the riches in the world.

The fact that you are sober minded to think of him and his welfare is priceless.

The rest will come - Hold on tight Nick."

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
