Promises and Gratitude

Just when I think I have everything figured out, I'm thrown for a loop. Mind you, a great loop. =)

Things couldn't possibly be better for me these days. I absolutely love my new job and most of the people I work with and it's been keeping my very busy lately. I've made a few new friends and have gained a new outlook in the process. This is such a wonderful life! I've always known the promises would come true over time if I worked the steps and dove into AA - but I didn't know I would feel this complete as a person. For a long time I've felt that AA has allowed me to become the person I was truly meant to be, but I never knew that I could become comfortable with all of me.

A few months ago I said something about a growth spurt and an AFGO, and it feels so good to finally be on the other side of things. Between having to go to a hearing for my nursing license and a friend being diagnosed with cancer weighing on my heart, things have all finally evened out and I'm filled with gratitude.
