Today I am going in to work to clean up loose ends, do my vacation e- mail notification, unsubscribe to list-servs, do my happy vacation voice mail... "this is Mary G., I will be away from my office from June 30 through July 9. I will return on July 12. If you need something.... bla bla bla...." Happy, Happy, Happy.
My sponsor keeps saying she can't wait to see my daughter's reaction to all of this. My daughter is young (31) and newly sober (17 months). I can't wait to share it all with her. I have never been able to go to an International, so it is all new to me too. She is excited, I think I am just as excited. To wait nearly 26 years to do something that you long to do makes it pretty exciting.
Sobriety is so very good.
