Things have been pretty good. Still abstinent, which should be cause for celebration. Last week was a pretty rough week as a parent. Lots of school work issues. Thankfully we got those resolved - though we had to take away the cellphone for a while. Pretty effective.
Saturday was the Lupus Walk. I really wish I had brought my camera. The event was beautiful!!! Over 3000 people gathered to walk & raise awareness about Lupus. I was so blessed to be walking with my 2 sisters, my niece, my sister's boyfriend & my sister's friend. Ooh, and I cannot forget Gaby, my niece's friend.
Our 5K was changed to a 1.5 mile (which I hear is a 2.5K). Piedmont Park in Atlanta is BEAUTIFUL!! I can't believe I've lived here for 6 years now and that was the 1st time I had checked it out! Worth going back for.
Mother's Day was nice. It was a quiet day. I even got a nap!! Then we had some friends over for dinner - pulled pork sandwiches. YUMMY! Craig is quite the cook.
In other news, school is almost over. Just 2 1/2 weeks left before Craig and the kids are home for the summer. I've got mixed feelings. As much as I cannot wait to have them all home, this will be the 1st year that I have NOT worked during the summer. Which means we'll be together 24/7! I will be learning a LOT of patience this summer.
My new mantra:
In our weakness, there is strength.
I've heard it at my OA meetings time & time again. Yesterday, I heard it as a line in a song. Such a short sentence holds such powerful truth.
I'm doing life one day at a time. Learning that the only person who can fix me is me. That is the key to my recovery.
Not much else.... though you never know when I'll be struck with a new blog!
