Today I told my boss I would be a bit late tomorrow morning. I need to go to a sponsee's birthday meeting at 6:30 a.m. And then I need to go to church at 8:00 a.m. I told her I wouldn't be very late, but I would be late.
She said I work more than my fair share of hours and I have a lot on my plate. And then she said "And most of the things you do are for other people." Well, I am glad she has the perception that I am so unselfish. Because....
Right now I feel like if one more person calls me and cries or complains I will scream.
It would be so nice for someone to just call to say hello, or to actually see how I am.
But I am the sponsor, I am the mother, I am the grandmother. I have become invisible. I am just the ear to listen to the drama.
OK, enough out of me. I am going to bed.
Gee, I know that sugar and I don't get along really well... do you think this might be evidence?
I can still thank God for another day when I didn't drink, and I didn't want to. And regardless of how I feel, that is still a wonderful thing.
