Last night at church the homily was about honoring the sabbath. I love to hear that. I need to be reminded that God himself wants me to take a day off. I shall do that today.
I am heading out this morning to a 7:30 meeting across town. It is my friend John's 3rd birthday. I was talking with a friend on the phone last night who said "It SHOULD be his 14th or 15th birthday." Well, yes, and every single person who needs to get sober SHOULD get sober and stay sober and life SHOULD be wonderful every single day of the week. And then there is reality. I am just so very grateful that he is alive and celebrating 3 blessed years of sobriety. And so is he.
And then I am meeting a friend to go to a movie. There is a theater with a $4 movie at 10 in the morning on the weekends. It is so much fun to go to these. We frequently just see whatever movie is playing at that time... sometimes there isn't much of a choice. But I looked last night and noticed that the movie I want to see (Inception) is playing. I hope my friend agrees!
Life as a sober woman is so very good. (It probably is if you are a man too, but I can't speak to that.)
