Saturday Morning, Dave's Birthday, St. Paddy's Day...
Today is my friend Dave's birthday. Go over and wish him a good one. He is such a true blue AA member and truly great guy. (sorry Dave, I know this will make you uncomfortable, but it is true!)
Yesterday I actually had a good day at work. Well, I wasn't in my office, but I was all over the city, meeting and talking with people. Listening to a presentation on how trauma effects us. Sitting in an office doing a site visit. I thought - geez, I am on the other side of this equation now. I know what it feels like to sit on the other side of this desk. So, I can have empathy and try to make it easier for the other person. Just because you have authority doesn't mean you have to act like an authoritarian bureaucrat.
I am going to the icon workshop this afternoon. I have a rescue icon. I hope I can repair him. But I have to admit, it is going to be kind of hard to spend the afternoon in a church basement when it is 73º and beautiful outside. I'll be out this morning - going out with my running club for the first time in a couple of weeks. It will be nice to see my friends and get some exercise. And then I have a date tonight! What an exciting day!
I am grateful to be alive and sober. God has been so good to me.
