This morning, as I do every morning, I prayed for guidance, strength, and direction.
In the last couple of days, I have:
Been with Mom & Daughters for B-Day celebration (Hers, not mine)
Taken my youngest shopping for her Homecoming dance and arranged for her dress, transportation, sleepover with friends (here), etc.
Told “Jeff”, a newcomer, I’d take him through the steps.
Told “Eric”, the same.
Fielded a call from my transient brother in law. He wants a place to live, which I won’t do, but I did tell him I’d drive him to Salvation Army. I pick him up in a couple of hours and we’ll prolly go after I take him to dinner & catch up on lost time.
This is besides going to work, meetings, walking the dogs, and other domestic stuff.
“And grant me the strength as I go out from here to do your bidding”
Hey, I’m sober though 😉September 30, 2013 at 3:01 am#164733AnonymousInactive
that’s what i like about recovery / not drinking
i did quite a few things today, too
not as much as you
if i were drinking
it would have been only getting 3 things done
3 -drink some more
you posted a good thread
i like to read / hear at meetings the practical / reality side of recovery

GP it sounds as though your HP is giving you a sense of purpose also!!! Keep at it my friend, you are helping yourself by giving away freely what was freely given to you!
