Twelve Traditions

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

I think I’m having more trouble with the Twelve Traditions of my program than with the Twelve Steps. Maybe I’m still stuck at the “trust and have faith” stage? Because I’m not able to come up with answers for a lot of the questions.

Or maybe this is kinda the point of having a sponsor. I’ve gotten a couple phone numbers. Maybe I’ll call someone tomorrow.

My first real Valentine’s Day

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

I just had my first real Valentine’s Day “date”. It was lovely, starting with the roses (with each of us getting there early, eager to see the other) and continuing through to the tender good-byes, wishing we didn’t have to return so soon to our respective homes and responsibilities.

What a shame, all those wasted years before and during my marriage; so many wasted opportunities for happiness. I’m glad I’m working on leaving that part of my life behind. What I see ahead of me is so promising and pleasing, even delightful. I can hardly wait!
