Another Day

My daughter and granddaughters came over last night. The little ones are both taking karate. They came here straight from their class. It is so nice to see my daughter clean and sober. God willing, and the creeks don't rise, she will have 90 days in a week.

I am heading out of here for a quick run before work. Work is bound to be challenging today, but I will see what I can bring to it instead of what I can take. That seems to work really well.

"Dr. Bob did not need me for his spiritual instruction. He had already had more of that than I. What he did need, when we first met, was the deflation at depth and the understanding that only one drunk can give to another. What I needed was the humility of self-forgetfulness and the kinship with another human being of my own kind." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 212

I'm so, so happy to hear about your day with your grandkids and your daughter's sobriety. Sober life is really sweet, isn't it -- as long as you try to work out, eat right, and keep doing those last 3 steps!
