I came out to the anchorage on Tuesday. Last evening, the sunset was spectacular. A rain shower came through and afterwards, the gulls were calling and the noise of the waves crashing on the beach provided the only sounds needed.
I will clean up the boat in the morning and get home to make sure all will be okay there before the storm comes. We are supposed to have about 15 people over for a picnic on Saturday. Maybe the worst of the rain will be over by then.
I went to see Pop before going out on the boat and he was surprisingly good and also talking to me. He is so thin with arms and legs like sticks. But he seems to be eating more lately which is good. I feel good when I come away from seeing him and know that he is eating and communicating.
Another fellow asked me to sponsor him last week. So when one walked away after a year and a half saying that recovery was no longer a priority, it was good that another asked me immediately to work with him on the Steps. I get a lot from working with others. I am helped by going through the steps again and again. It keeps everything about recovery fresh in my head. I am grateful for the chance to help another and by doing so, help myself.
I will check back in as the storm moves up the coast. Happy Wednesday to all of you.
