Friday Morning Meeting

Lately I am using photos from last year at this time.  My computer allows me to view my photos individually, by event, or by the last 12 months.  I love to look at "the last 12 months" and see what I was doing a year ago this time.  Last year in the beginning of November I was still getting out in the morning (instead of hitting the treadmill as I am doing this year) and taking gorgeous photos of the sunrise.  There are not many photo opportunities in my basement on the treadmill.   But this year, the ground is covered with a lot of snow.

This morning I am telling my story at the 6:30 meeting.  I always get nervous about this.  My sponsor told me a long time ago that when I stop being nervous about speaking at an AA meeting, I should stop doing it.  I have prayed that God put the words in my mouth.   And then I remind myself that this is not about me.

I have another weekend coming up that is so full it is scary.  I looked at my calendar yesterday to see if I could take Monday off.  I can't.  But Veteran's Day is on Friday and I get that off.  I need a long weekend!

And I think I need a new dress and shoes too.  Maybe I can do that on my lunch today?

No matter what, I think I will stay sober today and I hope you will too.

Sounds like you have a busy day. I am glad to have minimal busyness now. I just do those things that I really want to do.
