Sober since April 6, 2006

we CLAIM spiritual progress ...

... but "claiming" spiritual progress and actually making it are two different things.

Things didn't go my way today. My perfect and almighty expectations were not met. Some plans didn't work out the way I thought they should this morning, and my sponsor didn't behave like I thought she should have. Because I know what's best for everything. (I'm being sarcastic here.)

Normally this kind of stuff doesn't bother me. Things can go wrong, people can be unreasonable, and I'll just smile and roll along with it. But today, I feel crippled by it.

We're granted a daily reprieve contingent on our spiritual condition. Mine must not be so good today.

Today, I'm especially grateful for ...

  • being 270 damn days dry (not "sober" today ... just "dry")
  • sharing a fantastic New Year's eve with a great guy
  • having my grandparents over
  • going back to work tomorrow
  • having a Big Book to read (or throw)
  • my car still works
  • my dog still likes me
  • my family still likes me
  • God and all His practical jokes
