That may or may not be my kids on a roller coaster. My daughter was 24 on September 10. Future shock indeed. By the time I was her age, I had her, a cat, two years of sobriety and I was about to move very far away from home. I can’t honestly say I wasn’t doing well, but she is doing so much better. I don’t know what the future holds. That’s probably more frightening for someone like me who has heard how many thousands of personal stories over the years. How many have I seen not end well? I remember hearing that if we knew what the future held, we wouldn’t be able to handle it, but one day at a time, we get through. Till we don’t.
Tonight is the fourth anniversary of the group Carole and I started. It’s a great group. But I don’t like parties. But I’ll go and be happy anyway.
Yesterday was the anniversary of September 11, 2001, and we had a sort of ceremony at work. I felt blessed that I was with those people then and I’m with them now. I’m very lucky I’ve had that history and consistency that I love.
President Obama’s speech to the congress increased my love for him. Again, a true blessing to experience this in my life. People who know me or follow the blog know I was a huge Hillary supporter, still am, but I see that he may be able to get much more cooperation than she would have. I might was well look at it that way.
Carole and I are off to explore a trail with the dog before getting ready for the meeting. Today it is all good.
