But Now am Found...

I got my cup back today! There are advantages to losing things at a church, it is unlikely that someone will make off with your things. I called this morning and they said they found it. I drove over there at lunch time and got it. While I was there I got to go spend a half hour in silent prayer, which was a wonderful thing to do in the middle of a stressful day at work.

I am just very tired at the end of a long day.

Nothing notable happened today other than getting my cup back.

Do you know it took me some time to learn how to live "ordinary" days with no "excitement" when I was newly sober? I thought something had to "happen" every day. Sometimes I created the excitement myself just so it would be there.

Today I can gratefully accept - even embrace - an ordinary day where nothing "happens."

A lot happened here today. I too like ordinary days but today was a bit extraordinary in some ways. But I took it in stride.

It has taken me so much time to adjust to ordinary days in life.

So many times I sought out drama.

What a great entry!
