BUSY DOING THINGS


IN ALL OUR AFFAIRS


This Sunday night I am in such a good place in my head. This is a result of some of the following experiences today:

Attended two meetings.
Played mass.
Visited with friends.
Stayed sober...as if...what else? -grin
Went to Step meeting (extra) 5:30 PM.
Talked to Fire Engineer daughter.
Visited with Anna's daughter, a 27-yr old sweetie.
Prayed.
Helped someone...really!
Phoned an out-of-town AA friend in evening.
Watched few minutes of TV--Hubba-hubba(?).
Ate a BIG homemade Sundae w nuts, etc., etc.
Spoke with Flex several times today.
Flex and I have become GOOD friends.

At different times today I became:

A part of.
A student.
A teacher.
A listener (although I really did the talking -grin!).
A know-it-all.
A know-nothing.
A Big Book Thumper.
NOT an AA Nazi..No, no.

I felt today:

Needing.
Needed.
Respected.
Crazy. (Not unusual!).
Listened to.
Caring.
Loving.
Loved.
The most important: HUGE Gratitude.
God's grace.

A SPECIAL Thank You everyone, for your timely help last week...I'll NEVER forget those moments of prayerful love, and caring shown by you, my wonderful 'peeps'. Though some of you may leave, and some arrive, and some return, I'll always love you ALL. Some times I think, "Steve, that's too much 'love' to be throwing around like confetti, it must not sound (or be) genuine".

Then I remember, He said something about 'Faith, Hope and Love...and the greatest of these is LOVE.' So THERE! Wherever, Whatever, However, Please stay sober with me today NMW.

In love and service,
Sincerely,
Steve E.

You felt needing and needed. You felt listened to. You felt God's grace. And all the rest of what you wrote - It doesn't get much better than that! Does it?

Love the blog, love you,
Prayer Girl
