I am 60 today
So, I will get to a 6:30 AA meeting this morning. Then I will go to mass. Then to the pool for 60 lengths - 1500 meters. Then to the spa for a mani - pedi, etc. My boyfriend is taking me to one of my favorite restaurants tonight.
I am more grateful than words can express. Although my life is not where I thought it would be, it is more wonderful than I ever could have dreamed. Because the things I do not have are not really the important things, but the things I do have really are important.
I keep thinking about my mother this morning. She died when she was 57. If I want to complain about how old I am getting, I think of how she would have loved to have gotten old.
So, I have another sober day, and another opportunity to be of service to God and my fellows. And what could be better than that?
Thank you bloggers for being such a wonderful part of my life. xoxoxox, Mary Christine
