My amends yesterday made me feel better. Although the person who chaired the meeting last week wasn't there, I called her last night and left a message saying that I would like to talk with her. I learned that she was upset because I left the meeting and thought that it was her fault. My behavior had a domino effect of making others feel bad. And my resentment that day did nothing for me at all. So I'm glad that I had a chance to clear that up at the meeting yesterday.
I am going to meet with a sponsee later today. He is making great progress on Step Four. In fact, two of my sponsees are tackling the rather daunting Blueprint for Progress book that is part of Al-Anon's Step Four. I can see the changes in them, and they have said that they feel as if they are finally getting it. It just takes a while.
I am not going out on the boat this weekend. I will likely go down to the boat and check on her, but Saturday is supposed to be rainy and cold. Sunday is the day of the gigantic oyster roast that we attend each year. There will be 10,000 bushels of oysters and thousands of people there to eat them. We have our tickets so I'm going to rest up for the Sunday festivities.
I hope that your Friday is going well.
