Default Finally things are falling into place! THANK YOU!

After 13 months of not having my own place to live i have finally rented a room in a house in Pacific Grove...3 blocks from the bay, Cannery Row and The Aquarium! Its a great quiet neighborhood and close to the busline...im still without a car, but that will come eventually...
Another example if we are patient, keep working towards our goals, things will AND DO fall into place!
I have been so blessed to have the nicest of friends that have had my back and be supportive of me all through this trying year.
And all of you here on PTO have been so supportive! Thank You!
And i have to thank My Higher Power for ALL of this...Thank You!!!
... I just want to cry i am so happy and so GREATFUL!!!
If you are struggling keep the course...you will get to where it is you want to go! And if you dont believe that for yourself then I believe it for you!

Congrats Dana!

It's that Karma thing: for all of the smiles that you freely pass out here on PTO, the Good Lord above is not only smiling down on you, but giving you something to smile about!!!

Dana, don't forget that this is because YOU have worked for it. You haven't scammed or denied or slipped. You've worked on you, stayed honest, done your meetings. You've EARNED the good that's coming!

OMG, Dana!! I'm sooooooooooo happy for you! Let the truth be told, you DO deseve all of the great things in life!!

You can't just leave it there though. I have so many questions. What does the house/ your room look like? What are your roommates like? Is it a room in a shared house or more like a small apartment? Will you now stay in Monterey and not go back to Ohio? Okay, I can go on and on. But, it's probably better to let you get settled in first. I'm just so proud of you right now!...andy

Thank You everyone for your good wishes!
Andy i'll take a pic of the house...its a small duplex...i will be living with a gentleman who is 63...an old hippy type... he seems to be cool, the room isnt huge but its all i need, we will share the bathroom and kitchen...you look out the backdoor in the kitchen and you have a clear view of the bay which is just 3 blocks down.
And i will be moving to Ohio as soon as i finish up my DUI classes...
Thanks everyone!

Moving to your own "Space" is cause for celebration...
And I'm passing on an Irish Blessing because I believe ANY new dwelling deserves to be Blessed!
Gentle Hugz to you, Dana~


May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you
