My son just skyped, so we got to talk with him for a while. It is sweet to see this little baby blowing kisses and waving to her Daddy. He will be home in under 2 months. I will be very happy when he leaves that part of the world and comes home.
Yesterday morning after my run, I went to a meeting I have never been to before. I was feeling shaky after the run in memory of the woman who was abducted and murdered. I was glad I went though. It would have felt very bad to stay at home and feel like I am so hobbled by my experience. So, I went, but I did feel shaky.
At the meeting a man was celebrating a year of sobriety. His sponsor was there and brought him a beautiful cake. There was another man celebrating two years. It was a nice meeting. I think I will go back to that meeting.
So, it is another Sunday morning. People are waking up sober. Grandmothers are watching their babies. The Sun is shining. Sober people are going to AA meetings. People are celebrating sober birthdays. Families are reunited. Children aren't worried about their parents being drunk.
If I needed reassurance that we have a God who loves us very much, the above paragraph would do the trick!
