Happy Birthday to Kenny!

Kenny is Three Years Sober Today! Go over and wish him a Happy Birthday!

My cold is miraculously gone. I thought I was going to die after that 10 mile run on Saturday, but yesterday morning, I woke up and felt great. I spent most of yesterday with my daughter. I got to meet some of her NA friends. My biggest job? Keeping my big mouth shut. We got to go out for a nice pasta dinner, which was lovely. She is so funny, she makes me laugh so much. I feel like I am getting to spend time with a person I have not seen for 3 or more years (the time she was deep into her addiction).

Now I shall go out for a quick 4 mile run and get to work. I get to start another week. I really like Mondays. I really like my Monday night meeting.

"When we developed still more, we discovered the best possible source of emotional stability to be God Himself. We found that dependence upon His perfect justice, forgiveness, and love was helathy, and that it would work where nothing else would." -- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 116

Glad that you and your daughter are sharing laughter and love. I'm not so much wild about this Monday. I'm still tired from the weekend.
