Today I am going on a site visit to a provider of mental health services. Thank God I asked the person I am going with what I should wear. I was going to go pretty casual. He said he wears a coat and a tie. Yikes. I am wearing a jacket and slacks. And new shoes. New silver shoes with a flower on top!
Yesterday my son called me! Who would have ever thought that Kuwait sounds like safe haven? It does, believe me. He is very happy to be there. And will be happier to get to London and see his wife. And later will be back home and will see his momma - ME! YAY!
Even as a young woman, long before I had children, I said there is just something special between a mother and her son. Boy, was I right!
One of my sponsees called three times last night and then again at 6 a.m. today. I ended up talking to her for about 20 minutes this morning and that is why I have no time to write a coherent post. She used me as a job reference. I told her to NEVER do that again without asking the person first. Now I have to think of a way to give an honest reference about a woman who has a crisis every single day at work. Yesterday she told one of her co-workers to f--- off. If I were hiring, I would rather leave the job vacant than have someone like this to deal with.
And in AA, I have learned to love these problem people. Also, in AA, I have learned how NOT to BE one of these problem people. What could be better than that?
By the grace of God..... By the grace of God.
