Please act right and save me the amends process
A lot of people around me did not act right this weekend. I needed to type that and look at it. Truth is, I don't always act right either. I have an amends to make this morning and I need to do it without putting a "but" in the sentence. I need to do it from a "right" place. I can not however, get to the "right" place on my own. I will seek Gods will on this before opening my mouth or putting pen to paper.
Last night in a meeting, a girl with eight years sober was talking about injuring her foot Friday and then having to stand for 12 hours at work on Saturday. While driving home late Saturday night, it crossed her mind that a shot of tequila would ease the awful pain in her foot. Then she remembered that one shot of tequila can only travel down as far as the rib cage and it would take at least four shots to able to reach all the way down to her foot. We all shook our heads in agreement since this is a well known fact.
Enjoy the day ahead.
