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.
