Monday 8/16/10 - "BUSY"
Today (Sunday) began with an Al-Anon meeting at 11:00 followed by meetings with two Al-Anon sponsees, first a short visit with one followed by a longer meeting with the other to begin working on Step 4 using "Paths to Recovery". By the time I got home daughter and hubby who were both gone this morning were back. Mr. Steve and I went for a quick coffee at one of our favorite spots, Starbucks. It was a farewell coffee since hubby is leaving tomorrow on a scooter trip.
This evening I spent time with daughter watching a movie. She suffers constantly with sinus infections and it was good to just sit and relax. People with sinus trouble seem to be particularly affected adversely in this part of the country. I also had conversations with two of my other sponsees during the night. It has been a busy day.
Daughter is preparing to start a new job tomorrow. She has been out of work for about 3 months and the company who let her go three months ago has rehired her to do do marketing for them. I am preparing to start back at my volunteer job at the hospital doing pastoral care after being on sabbatical for the summer. I will be praying for guidance. Being off three months means I have fallen out of the routine, but I know I will return to the pattern quickly.
Please pray for me, my daughter and my husband as we move into our separate activities and in different directions tomorrow.
Heard at a meeting: Don't tell God how big your mountains are, tell your mountains how big your God is.
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.
