Sunday, 3/20/09 - "MY WEEKEND"

(The weekend is full of the beauty of Spring!)

"MY WEEKEND"

Today passed so quickly I feel like I've been in some type of time warp.

It began with a meeting with a sponsee to do a 4th step using the Al-Anon "Paths to Recovery". This was a beautiful experience - more layers of the onion peeled away exposing "truth". Truth can be painful, unwanted, or just plain uncomfortable, but it does "set us free". I felt the doors of freedom opening for this wonderful lady. Thank God for the rest of the steps so we can deal with what we discover in the 4th step.


Next, it was off to a Noon Alcoholics Anonymous women's meeting and an opportunity for conversations with several women very special to me.


Home again, home again, jiggity-jog, and then off to Church.


After that it was a trip to the grocery store to pick up goodies for my daughter's 4-day visit. She has arrived and I'm so excited.


Tomorrow is my son's 38th birthday - exactly 6 days before his wedding. It will be unlikely he will ever forget his anniversary. Steveroni and I sandwiched our wedding day between our birthdays. His birthday is the 25th, our anniversary is the 27th, and my birthday is the 29th. We NEVER forget our anniversary. -VBG-


Tomorrow is also the 5th anniversary of my Al-Anon home group. We will have two speakers and then a celebration with cake, fruit, sodas, and coffee. Daughter will be with her Dad all day.


Hopefully Monday will turn out to be a beach day. Maybe I'll meet daughter at the beach after my volunteer gig.


Love to you all my blogger friends. Hope you have as blessed a weekend as I'm having.

It is amazing how these simple stories of life take on special significance in the light of our sobriety.

How wold these everyday stories have sounded...otherwise?
Love,

To clarify a little - my son's birthday is today March 29th and his wedding will be April 4th.

The 25th, 27th, and 29th dates for Mr. Steveroni and I are in May.

We get to celebrate for a whole week. Yeah! Can't wait!

This last Feb, my husband & I had our 32nd wedding anniversary. About 2 weeks before the date, my husband says to me "are we going to do something special for our 30th."
Arggg...I give up LOL!

Sounds as if you are having a great weekend. Have you used the Blueprint for Progress for the 4th step in Al-Anon? It is a really thorough fourth step IMO.
