Wonderful Wednesday

I just got done with a run - my best time in a long while. If you could bottle the fragrance of all the flowers and fruit trees in blossom, you could become very rich. I love May.

The former boyfriend showed up yesterday and installed a new pressure relief valve, and also fixed my sprinkler system. It was both wonderful and terrible to see him. It brought back a lot of stuff. I wanted to stay home from work and just spend the day with him, but I didn't. I am very grateful to him for spending most of a day here fixing all this stuff that makes me feel so vulnerable and helpless.

So, as I sit, drinking my water and trying to cool down from my run, I can hear the lovely hiss of my sprinkler system running! Left to my own devices, at this time in the morning, I would be trying to get the first drink down so that I could stop shaking. Thank God I had enough of that kind of "fun" and became willing to admit defeat. And in return I got a life that was beyond my wildest dreams.

How nice of him to help. : ) sounds like a wonderful morning to me too! I do love that runner's high from all the endorphins that kick in after a good run. I hope it carries you through the day!

Everything is blooming all around. The sense of smell is wonderful. How wonderful it is to wake up sober.

That was really nice of ex to help you out with this bundle of mess beyond your control even if some unwanted emotions came with.

Well I will not get to smell the flowers when I drive through there tommorrow. I am planning on spending Tuesday there before I head back. Life is good to us thanks to God and this program.

Well, Mr. Maaack, I hope we will get to talk for a second or so. Give me a call if nothing else...

Yep, getting that first drink always took a huge chunk of time.
