Sunday 12/20/09 - "GOOD MORNING SUNDAY"
"GOOD MORNING SUNDAY"
I've been battling a cold since last Wednesday night. Christmas is not a good time to be sick, but then when is? I've been taking Zicam regularly and I think the symptoms will stay mild.
Friday night was not a good sleeping night. I probably had 3 hours of sleep which for me just doesn't cut it. I was asked to speak at a 9:30 Saturday morning women's meeting. I dragged myself there and God was with me. My talk went well. I felt good about speaking and by the time I was finished I felt so much better. God is good.
Last night my three best, longtime friends and I went out to dinner and had a little gift exchange for Christmas. We ate at PeiWei that has wonderful Asian food (I had sweet and sour shrimp with extra vegetables and added sweet chile sauce) and topped the evening off with ice cream from a little shop next door.
Daughter was out with friends to the movies when I returned so I had the opportunity to wrap her presents and get them under the tree. I wrapped while watching a Disney movie, Enchanted. Even at my age, I loved it.
This morning I'm off to my Al-Anon meeting, will meet with a sponsee, and tonight there will be a small Christmas get-together with with a few Alcoholics Anonymous friends. Life doesn't get much better than this.
Love to all, Prayer Girl

I'm sober in AA since July 5th 1985, and a grateful member of Alanon since November 2004.
I joined the "blogosphere" in September, 2008.
In December 2011 I became a grandmother for the first time and now understand why it's such a big deal. I'm wildly in love again with that little guy.
