Today has been a day off from work. I took the dogs to the park for a couple of hours. They met up with some pals and checked their pee mail.
I like to watch the doggy interactions. Everyone ran and jumped and played fetch. There was no growling or bad behavior. I wish that people had the ability to get along like dogs do.
I just talked to a friend in AA who did a 12 step call. The drunk man was so shaky and dehydrated that they called for medical assistance so that he could receive fluids. Today, my friend Is taking the man to detox. I wonder what wife/mother/father/child/ is hoping for the miracle of recovery this Christmas.
I am thankful for having sober people in my life today. But I am thankful that their alcoholism was the reason that I sought help for my own troubles. I still have a long journey but can look behind me at the rough terrain I've covered and see how far I've come.
I'm going to post some photos over the next couple of days of Christmas things. I can feel the joy seeping in and I'm letting it. I hope that there is joy in your heart today.
