This was a good weekend. I'm tired today but just because I didn't get enough sleep last night. I took several naps yesterday on the boat but can't seem to sleep much during the night because I awake to every sound when I'm on the water.
Anyway, we all had a good time. It was foggy on Saturday and Sunday morning. I really like being in the fog. It's almost primeval. The fog blocks out all signs of civilization and one can wonder what it was like before there was a city nearby.
The campfire on Saturday evening was really nice. We roasted hot dogs and used smoke to keep the gnats away. Those "no-seeums" are out and since there was little breeze, it was hard to get away from them.
I think that we needed a get-away after the past week. And we visited my wife's sponsor for a short period on Friday. She was in and out but seemed to be in no pain and recognized my wife. When I went in, she was sleeping peacefully. We left when the attorney came by to take care of business. The Hospice facility is beautiful and the staff is so kind. It made us both feel better to know that she is in such a nice place and seems peaceful.
"Since death is certain, the real question is. How shall we live? By pursuing recovery and spiritual growth we have chosen to live more fully and to use our energies well. We live with commitment to our highest values. We stay in tune with our inner voice to help us make choices. We play, we love, and we celebrate the miracle of life every day, not because there is no grief, but because life is precious and time is limited." from Touchstones.
