Today went fairly well. I got up and did what I said I was going to do – worked on step work first thing. Then we got ready and made it to church early for tithing settlement.
Sacrament meeting was when things got a bit tough: J was quite a pain and it seemed to me that Caleb seemed to egg him on while “helping.” It could have been worse, but it’s hard when I’m trying to pay attention and get something out of the talks.
In fact, Jayden even freaked out at nursery so Beck and I took him home and got him down for a nap at 1:00 (great, we start church next week at 1:00). So this may only get worse…
The rest of the day went fairly well. We watched the Packers get a win and then played Rummicube as a family. I was proud of myself for not going crazy on the kids, who seemed extremely crazy and wild. We got the kids down at about 8:00, just in time for me to get on the phone with my sponsor Brandon for a call about step 4 work. It was nice to talk to him and I feel the process is going well.
I’m grateful to have a sponsor.
I’m grateful to be working the steps of recovery.
I’m grateful to be living in recovery today.
I’m grateful to be aware of some of my character weaknesses that I felt today as I dealt with the kids.
I’m grateful Becky and I were able to talk about things.
I’m grateful to be headed to bed now.
I’m grateful to have friends like Ray and Amy.
I’m grateful to be home for the holidays this year.
I’m grateful that Becky seems to be doing good with the baby and that progress.
I’m grateful to be willing to submit my will to God and trying every day to live in recovery.
I look forward to a new day where I can work on my patience and charity with the kids.
