Our internet connection is down in our house.
We lost it almost a week ago.
This makes it impossible for me to read all of your blogs, as well as post on mine, unless I go to a coffee house or the library.
At first I was anxious. I was worried about not being able to leave you my positive messages on your blogs.
I was worried, people would forget to look at my blog.
Then I came to an acceptance. I had to. I had no choice. I could worry and be mad, or find some wifi.
So here I am, having a skim latte.
On Monday my Loved One and I helped his nephew and his girlfriend move into a trailer house, where they will live until his girlfriend finishes her Master's degree. To be honest, I did not want to go. My back cannot carry anything heavy, and I was tired and crabby.
But I went to support my husband and his family.
And I was glad I did.
Helping other people always helps me way more than it helps them.
Even if I was not able to carry much weight, I was able to help lighten the load.
Today, I played golf today with a friend.
It was a drizzly day, and we got wet, but we didn't care.
We've been playing every week, and this is a time I look forward to.
We work hard at our game, helping each other by looking for ways to improve.
We also have fun, laughing and discussing life.
I am a people person by nature. I get energy by being with others.
I make connections, learn, and get support by being with others.
This is also true about trying to get and stay sober.
When I work with other people, we both get support and learn.
By working together, we can lighten the load for each other.
