Rainy Tuesday

I woke to the sound of the rain on my roof this morning. I layed in bed for about 15 minutes just listening to it. Spring is a glorious time of the year. I feel almost myself again this morning. I got out and ran yesterday and was glad I did. I went to work yesterday and was glad I did. I got to a meeting last night and was glad I did. I went to a friend's apartment for a visit after the meeting and I was glad I did. I could have more easily stayed home and hid under the covers, that is what I felt like doing, but I am glad I didn't.

I am going to get out and run again this morning. It should be beautiful, the world waking up all freshly washed from a spring rain. It is 42 degrees, which is perfect for running.

I started writing my inventory yesterday. It felt good. Especially the first three columns! I really love the 4th step and the 10th step - of course, I love all the steps. It is incredible what this simple program can do. With a few simple steps, we are given the key to a new and wonderful life. We do not have to live with festering resentments and fear. We have a way out of these things that destroy our lives!

"The tremendous fact for every one of us is that we have discovered a common solution. We have a way out on which we can absolutely agree, and upon which we can join in brotherly and harmonious action. This is the great news this book carries to those who suffer from alcoholism." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 17

Are we all Pollyanna today and playing the glad game? If we are, then I am glad, too.

You have great will and determination. I would have crawled back in bed with a book. In fact, that's what I want to do today also. You've helped change that. Thanks.
