I've never been 38 before...

Well, another yr has passed and I am officially 38 today (that's belly button years, for you sober folk...) And dAAve, in the interest of accountability, 239.0 this morning, not much change... 16 down from when I began so, at least we're headed in the right direction.

I rolled into the office this morning so I could justify taking off early to spend the afternoon/evening with my wife and son. We're going to the C-Cake (hoping to avoid a bunch of unecessary hits....) Factory, yay! I love that place... I know it's all corporate and stuff, but the food is just damn good! And, who doesn't love Cheesecake! Then, it's off to a particular large chain toy story so Ian can blow some b-day money he got a couple weeks ago, then to B Buy, my fave store, so I can unload som gift cards... I have lunch with a sponsee and a former sponsee to work on the upcoming winter retreat.... And, of course, thanks to the State of O-h-i-o I get to pay for my vehicle registrations... Happy Birthday from them! lol So, it's off ta get some work done and then hang with my peeps the rest of the day...

Oh, and for you anxious pumpkin smashing peeps, I am going to post a bunch of photos on my pic blog here: Images I dig I ought to have them up momentarily...

Prayer for the day...

God/HP, thanks for another healthy sober morning... I know in my heart of hearts that without You, there is nothing, to say the least about being sober. Thanks for my parents doing what they did to come to the point to where they ended up making me... And thanks for Your hand in that! I pray that I may be willing to not delve too deeply into myself today, to enjoy the company of good friends and family and somehow still be willing to be of service. Also, please help me to remember that even though I specifically came in early today to get stuff done, it's really not that big a deal that the network is down at corporate, and I cannot access my email or my loan pipeline... I pray for Your Blessings and Your Will especially dfor the young fellow I met at my wife's home group yesterday who is a week sober...


peace to y'all!
