And I get to go to church to sit in silent prayer for an hour from 5 to 6 a.m.
Then I get to come home and go back to bed for an hour or so before I get up and quickly put my clothes back on and get out the door to work.
I get to go to my nice office today.
I get to crunch numbers this morning, figuring out means, standard deviations and confidence intervals ( I Like This!)
I get the chance to show if I have any recovery at a weekly meeting at 2:00 p.m. that weekly tests my serenity, peace, self-esteem, patience, and love.
I don't regularly meet with any of my sponsees on Thursday night, so I get to come straight home from work and do whatever the heck I feel like doing (and what I feel like doing might be to go to a meeting and dinner with my oldest sponsee!)
I have new glasses with a new prescription and I get to see better than I have for a while!
For all these things, I am grateful.... well, maybe not the 2:00 meeting at work. Some Thursdays I wish I could disappear just from about 1:30 to 3:30. Fall off the face of the earth.... but the rest of it? I am grateful, happy, and thankful!
"Can we actually carry the AA spirit into our daily work? Can we meet our newly recognized responsibilities to the world at large? And can we bring new purpose and devotion to the religion of our choice? Can we find a new joy of living in trying to do something about all these things?" -- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 112
