I just got home from seeing the new Harry Potter movie with my daughters and one of my son's friends. My son was out of town and couldn't attend. This is a tradition with us... we load up and go see the Harry Potter movies. It was fun. And in case you are a HP fan, it was a good movie.
I managed to get out for a run this morning for the first time in two weeks. I have got to find a way to get my running habit back. I have a triathlon in 2 weeks and I know I will be able to finish it, but it would have been much better if I had actually trained for it!
Yesterday, I was sitting in a meeting at my home group. As I was sharing, I idly looked across the room at the board where birthdays for the month are posted. It almost took my breath away to see:
Mary G. 25 yrs.
That is next Friday. If I hadn't been so busy, I am sure I would have made some grander plans for this landmark birthday, but as it is, I haven't. Fridays are speaker meetings at my 6:30 a.m. meeting, so I am going to be the speaker that day. That is the only plan I have made. I would like to get up to the north side of town to my old home group. Don't know if it is going to happen though.
Some years I want fireworks and cannons. Some years I just want to quietly thank God for his incredible mercy and love. I think this is one of the quiet years. We shall see... and you know I will keep you all posted.
Good night y'all. You all know that God loves you so much that he is giving you a golden chance to be sober, right?
