Sunday Morning

Someone brought me flowers again last night :-)

This morning I've been to an AA meeting where I got to see a young family man pick up a chip for 9 months. He told the most beautiful story about his 4 year old son. It was something that will stay with me all day. It was so nice to see someone who is staying sober and seeing his life change. What a beautiful thing.

And my daughter is on her way over. We will spend the day making pickles. She thought my son, her brother, in Iraq, would enjoy some of his mother's homemade pickles. She is right. He will. I am glad she thought of it. And I am glad she wants to do this with her mom.

Life is good. Sobriety is good. God has been so kind to me.
