Fear of Friday the 13th. I don't happen to have that fear, but it is interesting to know that there is a term for it if I should happen to begin to suffer from it.
I just got in from a 5K (3.10 mile) run. It is absolutely glorious out there! 32 degrees and sunny. This is the kind of morning that makes me fully realize why I love Colorado so much. As always, I am running late for work, sitting here in my spiffy new running gear, not looking so spiffy being darkened by sweat. Oh well... that is what it is for.
Had dinner last night with someone after the meeting. There is nothing like sitting with a fellow sober alcoholic and sharing a meal and laughs and little pieces of our souls. Thank God for Alcoholics Anonymous. I love it.
Thanks Al-Anon Lifer for reminding me of this passage, it is a good one... the 5th step promises:
"Once we have taken this step, withholding nothing, we are delighted. We can look the world in the eye. We can be alone at perfect peace and ease. Our fears fall from us. We begin to feel the nearness of our Creator. We may have had certain spiritual beliefs, but now we begin to have a spiritual experience. The feeling that the drink problem has disappeared will often come strongly. We feel we are on the Broad Highway, walking hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 75
