Yesterday I cleaned my office. It was a wonderful feeling. I never take the time to do this. I "straighten up" and "clean off my desk," but don't really go through things and take reams and reams of paper to the shred bins as I did yesterday. I also took two huge bags of clothing to donate to the clothing lab for the patients - the bags have been in the back of my car for a couple of months.
This morning I have done my morning prayer and meditation. I have painted my nails a nice conservative pink/beige. I will put my hair in rollers and get in the tub. I will wear the grey flannel Armani skirt that was my sister's birthday gift to me last year. It just looks like a skirt - but it feels like a million bucks - which is roughly what it cost.
I will put my best foot forward, and trust in God.
And hopefully I will get to see my daughter today. She works in the same building as I do and she said she will be back to work today. I hope I will talk with my other daughter today - last I talked to her, she was crying about her sister. Actually the last time I talked with both of them they were crying. This too shall pass....
Whatever happens, I plan to stay sober today, and hope you do too.
OH - and if you want to read a wonderful reflection on the nature of our disease, go see my friend AnyEdge today.
