9 days and counting …

Good morning Betty,
I am sitting at Micky D’s using their wifi catching up on a little in the world of cyberspace. Reading your post about the "days" remind me of the days I counted off when I first started on this program of recovery – before that I never made it to nine days; I made it to 7 a few times, the time between checks. But like GA ask us to do in our recovery, "Be patient …", I am being patient in waiting for phone and Internet service. Even in being patient, I have been able to rush the connection a bit; I should now be on line on the 3rd.
The last time my Internet access was limited this much it was for reasons out of my control too; the limitations were due to the all the time I had to be at the casino. The time before that was due to a natural disaster, a so called "Act of God". Now thanks to each day of being gambling free, and to a true Act of God, I take each change and challenge placed upon me in stride without the need to gamble.  My cyber connection my be interrupted, but my connection to all those here is strong.
Hope all is going well for you and the others here. I know that things have been ruff for some, but also know that being patient will lead to a more satisfying result.
God’s speed. 
 LarryThanks to my Higher Power, My 3G’s – God, GA, and GT,  "Day Two Is Another Day Behind" and with the help from all , I will continue to remain gambling free.
