Día de los Muertos

And for me, it is All Saints Day.  I need to be sitting, well, actually kneeling, in church in 45 minutes.  I am sitting in my pajamas, with dirty hair, right now.  I need to make this very very short.

Yesterday I had a sponsee call me six times and e-mail me once while I was trying to be with my children and grandchildren for halloween.  I have a daughter in recovery who can be very very intense and needy, and is having a hard time right now.

By the time everyone left, my face was twitching, and I was ready to move to another state to get away from everyone.

I don't think that is a reflection of me needing to indulge that urge.  That is an indication of me not having a proper attitude.  Really.  It is.  I get that way when I am too tired.  It doesn't help when I eat a bucket load of candy.

But you know what?  Today is a new day.  It is even in a new month.  I get to start my day with mass this morning.  (the second half of the sponsee's calls were frantic to tell me she was called into work early and could not make the meeting in the morning to celebrate her 6th birthday.)  So, I slept in and I feel swell.

Thank God I don't have to earn God's Grace.  Cuz I am feeling full of it this morning.

I like that feeling full of God's grace attitude. I am feeling pretty good today too. Lots of drama with a friend last night. He is sober but "dry" and celebrates 21 years today. What a mess he is though. I can only pray for him and be there as an ear, but even the latter leaves me twitching at times.

I hope you've had a nice day Mary! Refined sugar and needy people have that effect on me too, LOL. Each day offers us the lessons we need to learn though. Remember to take care of yourself. <3 Hope you get your good news this week. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. -Christy in Texas
