Snowy Friday Morning

It is 18 degrees and there are a couple of inches of snow on the ground. Which is as it should be in Colorado in February. The last couple of days have been so nice and warm. But the nice and cold and snowy is good too.

I have a quiet day at work to look forward to. I think I will go swimming after work. (It is time for the triathlon training to begin in earnest.) There is a meeting tonight at 7:30, where my friend Ray is celebrating 34 years of sobriety. I went to that meeting last week and it was good to be with a bunch of people I have known for many years.

Last night I went to a good meeting and had pizza with my sponsee. It was nice.

Do I sound like a broken record? I am grateful to be sober. I am grateful for my life today, no matter what is going on. I am grateful that I can fully participate in life today. Or like the 12 & 12 says (loosely paraphrased) a neighbor among neighbors, a friend among friends, a worker among workers. And a blogger among bloggers? I am grateful for this community of sober bloggers.

Even broken records are valuable.

You still have not posted the clogs.

AAwoken, I took pictures last night of my clogs (I had on a dress, black tights, and the clogs), but the pictures made my legs look freakishly large, so maybe I will take a pic tonight - with my legs being modestly covered by jeans... as they are right this very minute.

You know, it occurs to me that someone under 30 may not even know what a broken record sounds like!
