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.
