We get what we seek
It was wonderful to watch a sponsee pick up her 18 month chip last night. At the end of this month I will have the awesome privilege of watching another sponsee pick up a 15 year chip because yes, it works.
Do you know how old you are right off the top of your head? I have a birthday at the end of this month and yesterday I had to pick up a calculator to figure out my age. I was so pissed to learn that the age I thought I was all year is actually the age I'm turning at the end of the month. I do however know my sobriety date almost to the minute. Priorities I guess.
I guess it was real trendy in the early 80's to build a bar room in ones house because I have one. When we moved in here 7 years ago, I had someone sheet rock over the opening of the bar that lead into the living room so that now it's just a small storage room with a cabinet and a little sink. Anyway, it is my stockpile room for non perishables and I love to work on keeping it stocked when I find a bargain. It is filled with cleaning products, paper products, rice, dry beans, etc. Its also very organized and I love going in there and admiring my handy work. This may be the year we have to start drawing from that room. How wonderful that one of my hobbies is going to pay off.
Damn. I have to hit the shower. I believe this can be an extraordinary day if I seek joy in every hour.
