My sponsor and I met today, and frankly the beginning was a little tense. We talked thru a character defect I had, one that I thought I was making progress on, and one which he still saw in me clearly. On one hand, I had made progress, however I still need to work on things, which is the problem I ran into whenever I relapse. This disease is cunning and baffling, and trust me if you don't take stock of it daily, it will beat you.
Today I am grateful for:
- My wife and I being married for 6 years. I love her and she really helps me to be a better me.
- The opportunity to spend time with her tonight on a "date" something I wouldn't be able to do if I was still drinking.
- My sponsor and his words, both kind and unkind. They help ground me.
- God slowly changing me, and reminding me to slow down son....
