Prior to the rock and roll show, our parish held our annual outdoor Mass and picnic. That was a really nice event. It wasn't overly hot, picnic food was good, fellowship was nice. I feel so connected to HP when I am outdoors, that the outdoor Mass is special to me. We haven't missed it in along time. I felt especially connected to God at Mass... I love that.
I took a new buyer client through an open house yesterday, we have another to visit today. I'm enjoying real estate and slowly, business is building. The plan is that someday real estate will be full time and I will eventually buy the business from the present owners. Right now, the focus in on one client at a time. Thankfully, I have a day job that provides a salary, even if it isn't enough to cover everything.
I plan to hit the noon meeting at least once this week, if not twice. I was unable to get there last week, due to an oversly busy schedule. Even at 15+ years sober, there's a need for meetings. If nothing else, I am reminded of what I have to look forward to if I go back to my old life of drinking and using drugs. Newcomers keep me coming back. I gain perspective on my life, and I am reminded of the solutions to life's challenges and opportunities. Meetings are still my vital link to a solid recovery. That will never change. I guess for me, meetings are a sort of beacon, or lighthouse to guide me through rough waters and into safe harbour.
