In the Middle...

How wonderful it feels to be in the middle.  Sitting with my sponsor and sponsee.  Talking and laughing and catching up.  All talking at the same time because it has been so long since we have all sat together.  

I so seldom feel anymore that I am just right where I belong.  Most of my homies have moved on.  Probably bad terminology for a 57 year old white woman who is sober over 24 years, but it seems the best for now.  

But tonight, I got to be with my sponsor.  And my sponsee.  And I got to be in the middle.  I am not the oldest nor the youngest.  I am just about right.   And with people who love me for exactly who I am... and I love them for exactly who they are.  

Oh, I am so tired, but so full of joy.  

God is so good to us.  All we have to do is let Him.

Just let God--how beautiful. How right! Enjoy. Laugh. Smile. Be at peace. Be happy. Live, and love. At least for this moment--and beyond!

The middle of the road, not careening from side to side, is a good place to be. I'm so glad that you have these people around you. What a great blessing the program has brought.

A great thing that I heard at one of my first meeting was Let go-Let God.
