Back to the Work-a-Day World

The photo is from my run on Saturday - it was on a trail that ran along the Clear Creek in Golden - famous site of the Coors Brewery. It really was beautiful. And very close to home.

Yesterday I got several text messages wishing me a Happy Mothers Day - and I don't know who they were from. Since my blackberry died and I changed providers, I had to hand enter all of my phone numbers - I am sure I missed some. Like the people who wished me a Happy Mothers Day yesterday - I have no clue who they were. I thought of answering "thanks - but who are you?" but thought I would leave well enough alone. I talked with all of my children, including my long lost daughter - given up for adoption at birth in 1967. What a thrill it was to get a call from her.

And now I must get back to work. I told people I would be there at 7 o'clock... it is now 6:18 and I am sitting here at my home computer in my jammies. I could make it if I really kicked it in the butt.... but I would have to really work at it. I was invited out for snacks after work - including deep fried pickles - who can resist such a thing? We are supposed to meet at 3:30. At 7 p.m. I have my final exam for year 3 of Biblical School. I have a whole little handwritten book of notes to study today. I will do that. Amid the other things I must do.

It is all good. I am so grateful to be fully engaged in life today. Not something I was able to do when I was drinking.

It is all good in sobriety, even the tough times. Good luck with your biblical exam.

I kicked my butt in gear only to find out that it was a holiday at work. I was wondering why so few cars were there.

I hope your exam went well, I am sure the deep fried pickles helped in some way or another...

and Happy belated Mother's day! I did think of you and all you've gone through with your kids, but I wasn't out and about reading blogs Sunday.

I love that view and I'm only about a mile from it now (will be driving by in about 10 minutes). Work-a-day can be a great blessing.

Blessings and aloha...
