Saying Goodbye

10/4/10 I have edited this - I took out most of it. I was talking about someone I love. But if people who know me are reading this blog and comparing it to what they know about the group, I guess I won't write about anyone anymore. Not even in a general way.

This is going to make for a very boring blog.

Oh well.

We have the most amazing relationships in Alcoholics Anonymous. Truly amazing. I wouldn't have picked him for my friend, but he has been a great one. When you let God direct your life, he can do some amazing stuff.

I think I will continue to ask him to direct my life and be grateful for that.

(I am getting up at 4:00 to run a half marathon tomorrow.)

I look forward to years of sobriety in AA, and despite the fact I'm only 8 days in I've become so close with so many people already. I can't imagine how you must be feeling.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, your friend, and his family.

A fellow blogger gave me some good advice the other night, you'll get through this One day at a time :)

Godspeed on your half marathon. Deana Kastor, a US Olympic marathon runner . . . "Sometimes the moments that challenge us the most . . . define us."

Run strong, hard, and fast . . . and, of course, one step at a time. . .

Recoery friends are pretty cool. It's wonderful that you have a chance to say goodbye.

Run. Run well. Run safely.

I am sorry about your friend. I finally have friends in recovery. I wish you the best as you run the half marathon and hope that it goes well for you.
