I slept for 9 and a half hours last night. It is wonderful to wake up when the sun is already up.
I talked to my sponsor for a long time last night. I am going to cancel my trip to the western slope this weekend because I need to be here for my family. My sponsor agreed that as much as we would have loved to get together, it is right for me to do this. I am going to have my granddaughters all day Saturday while some pretty intense things are going on. I am relieved that this is all coming to an end, but scared and worried too. I am grateful for my ex-husband and his wife (I used to call her my wife-in-law) for their intervention into a situation that baffled me.
"It is just as self-deceptive to discount what is good in us as to justify what is not. This is false humility, which is as hampering as arrogance! The purpose of examining our characters - with as much honesty and detachment as possible - is not to exaggerate guilt for what we lack, but to use the good to overcome the faults." -- One Day at a Time in Al-Anon, p. 36
