Yesterday morning, I picked up one of my sponsees before daylight, and drove us to my home-group. I was interested to see how she liked it. I have suspected that I only love it so much because my people are there. The people I got sober with. She loved it as well, and said she would like to go with me every week.
There are many things whirling around my mind this morning. Thinking about an accident my daughter witnessed yesterday. A man who is probably now paralyzed. Accidents reported on television. Lives changed, lives ended. It reminds me of my first job in healthcare. In an acute care hospital, you hear these stories every day. I never get used to them. I am still haunted by several stories I witnessed there, now over 20 years ago.
I’ll head out to work, where people will get me focused on other things. Problems and challenges in this moment. In my life. It will be good to present in my own life today.
