I am off to meet a sponsee at a meeting this morning, then we will meet for a while afterwards. I look forward to this every week. I am so glad. I had begun to believe I was just too selfish to sponsor anyone - they all frustrated me so much. But I am now down to 2 women, and they both want to be sober. They both listen to what I have to say. They both really do the deal. The one I am meeting this morning wrote me a beautiful message on my birthday :
"Happy Birthday Mary! Thank you so much for the time and energy you've given to me. You are a great sponsor and I love you dearly. Love you, ______"
Well, hell, I have waited all my sober life for a note like that! What a blessing it is. I will have to remember that the next time I am having the life sucked out of me by some newly sober crazy woman - just like I used to be.
Have a great sober day everyone. XXXOOO, MC
