And soon I will be able to complain about having my house all torn up. We are doing the living room, dining room, stairs, kitchen, and hallway. I am sure it will be an issue for me because I so cherish my home as my refuge. But what a wonderful thing to have happen! I have wanted to replace this crappy carpet since I moved into this house 7 and a half years ago.
I also cherish this relationship with this woman. We are so different and yet we are so alike. Our relationship has changed so much over the years. Last night we were both complaining about other women we sponsor. It is awfully nice to have someone to talk about these things with. I can talk to my sponsor about it, and she can talk to me. My sponsee can talk to me about it and I can talk to her. I would never talk about these things outside of the precious bonds of the sponsorship relationship. But within the sponsorship relationship? we can talk about these things. Thank God.
To be part of the chain of this miracle of recovery is such an honor. And a responsibility.
Do you have a sponsor? Do you sponsor anyone? Have you worked the steps? Have you helped someone else go through the steps? These are the things that show we are members of AA and not merely spectators.
