Introducing a new friend who reached out in a time of need

It's probably no secret that most of my posting this past week has been more out of a sense of responsibility than out of my love of communication. You have all reached out to me a lot more than I've reached out to you, and for that I'm grateful.

I have also picked up three new followers, one of which has been back several times to check up on me. And the part of this which is becoming the norm here is this person is a recovery blogger. I love all my friends, but the recovery bloggers are building a very special place with me and making me believe that we all need to find a twelve step program tailor made for just us. Cliff Note: I do carry around a copy of the "Big Book" which I bought at the AA headquarters in Akron, Ohio, where AA began.

Introducing All's Fair in Love and Alcohol. It's written by Gin, and yes I did think that was rather amusing and ironic. Gin, like others, is a member of Al-Anon. She has quite a broad readership, so I do feel flattered that she has decided to not only list me as a follower, but put me on her side bar.

Some of her posts are quite humorous but all are insightful. As I normally do on these type post, I will tell you to check out All's Fair in Love and Alcohol, especially her latest post, titled Dear Angry Salad Bar Lady. This is one instance where you cannot have too much Gin.

Thank you for your kind words! I always get so much from other blogs and have always hoped to return a little of that. I hope you are doing okay. I am thinking of you.
