Monday Morning

I love Monday Morning. The whole week is ahead of me. Sometimes the work week seems like a place to rest up from the weekend. I had hoped for some rest over the weekend, but that never happened. I am not used to having a life so full of people. It is good, but it does wear me out.

I am heading out of here this morning to my 6:30 meeting. It is a great way to start a week. When I get to work, I have a meeting with my boss. I have got some real problems with this man. I will pray about what to say to him.

I am so grateful to be sober this morning. I am so grateful I didn't drink yesterday and didn't wake up wanting a drink today. It's just as simple as that. "Ask Him in the morning, and thank Him at night."

"As we go through the day we pause, when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or action. We constantly remind ourselves we are no longer running the show, humbly saying to ourselves many times each day 'Thy will be done.'"-- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 87, 88

I have to tell you, my first real prayer was that I could behave myself in my 2nd ex-husband's company who could punch buttons in me that I didn't even know I had! I'll never forget the sense of wonder that came over of me afterwards when I'd gotten through a conversation with him in fine style.

I really like the quote from the BB. I have to pause at times during the day when agitated or doubtful. I know that I'm not running the show. Thanks for posting this great quote.

He must have some very deep serious issues if he can't get along with you. Maybe God is pointing you in a different employment direction....hmmmm how exciting.

When I left my last employer I knew I had some resentments, but didn't realize how HUGE they were.

Then there is the Big Book quote: We had a new Employer. Being all powerful, He provided what we needed, if we kept close to Him and performed His work well.
