I got to a meeting and the sponsee I have been writing about a lot lately came and sat next to me. We talked for an hour after the meeting. It is hard to talk with someone who frequently calls people names, using terrible language. I have "suggested" that this is not helpful to her or anyone else, but apparently that is not something that she has "internalized" yet.
Last week at church the priest said "the only thing we take from this world is our good deeds." That has stuck with me. I hope I have a whole trainful of them by the time I go. But that is not in my nature. It is work, greatly aided by the grace of God.
I came home from the meeting and made the above breakfast - and ate it! I am going to now go lay on the couch and watch pre-football game shows, followed by football games. Oh, how I love this routine in the autumn.
Last night we saw the movie "Tower Heist," which I would highly recommend if you are looking for a silly funny movie. If you are looking for an award winning "film," I would skip it. I really enjoyed it and so did my b.f. We laughed - and he laughed at me as I hid my eyes behind his shoulder during the "scary" parts.
It's good to be sober. And alive. And not in too much pain. Thank you God.
