This is my beautiful granddaughter laying in the leaves. Last year (she had loose baby teeth in the pic, and now she has her big girl teeth). I tried to take a picture last night but I don't like any of them.
I realized last night that I have some post-race depression going on. It hits like a ton of bricks - from out of nowhere. I have lost all proportion. This is an awful feeling. But I know it will pass and that it is "normal" for people who have just completed a huge race that took months of training. I have been training for one thing or another since January. I am now done. Physically, I can use the rest - but mentally, this is difficult.
Today I hope to keep to myself as much as I can to avoid trouble with people at work. Then tomorrow I leave for a 3 day retreat. It is sponsored by my Biblical School. The theme of the weekend is the Lord's Prayer. That is what all the lectures will be about. I am really looking forward to it and I desperately need it.
I will pray about this blogging thing while I am gone.
"Moved by the spirit of anonymity, we try to give up our natural desires for personal distinction as AA members both among fellow alcoholics and before the general public. As we lay aside these very human aspirations, we believe that each of us takes part in the weaving of a protective mantle which covers our whole Society and under which we may grow and work in unity. We are sure that humility, expressed by anonymity, is the greatest safeguard that Alcoholics Anonymous can ever have." -- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 187
