Friday Morning

I seem to be climbing out of the deep dark abyss I fell into sometime on Tuesday afternoon. I expected a crash after the race, but this was a lot more than I expected.

The man I have been dating (but not talking about) called last night to tell me he has taken a job in another city and will be moving. Gee.

I am heading out of here for a 6:30 a.m. meeting. I need to sit for an hour in a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. I will probably go to the 5:30 meeting tonight after work too. Last night a sponsee wanted to have dinner with me, so I did that instead of going to my usual Thursday night meeting. I am grateful for her and the ability to sit and share with another woman in AA.

"We sit in AA meetings and listen, not only to receive something ourselves, but to give the reassurance and support which our presence can bring. If our turn comes to speak at a meeting, we again try to carry AA's message. Whether our audience is one or many, it is still Twelfth Step work." -- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 110

If you're gonna be running men off to live in other cities, run a few of 'em down this way.
No. Wait a minute. I'm taken.
Nevermind.

Have an awesome weekend.

And on behalf of all sponsees (especially newbies like me), I thank you for your willingness to listen. I am so grateful for my sponsor Colin. Just sitting in a meeting with him, I feel more hopeful and less frantic.

There's no way I could make it if it weren't for people like you!

Peace out!
Kari

Hey MC. You did not read me before because I had just started about the time we met.

MC, I'm sorry to hear about the down times. They seem to come when our resources to best deal with them are already low. Just thinking about you.
