Had a gal come into work today. Don't know her. The "outage" is taking place here. (annual cleaning of the nuclar power plant) She's here doing work & came into my gym. She was HAMMERED. I had patrions complaining & if you lit a match close by her we all could have gone up in flames! So the staff is so ready to call the Po-po but I think we should just take her home...or hotel as she's here working the outage from out-of town. She can't tell me the name of the hotel!!! Omy...she's in the weight room taking guys keys off the key rack insisting they take her home with them, then she threw up in the Cardio room and spilled the booze in her purse. The whole room smelled like a bar. It was then that you would think I would be mad...but I was'nt. I had this thought....It's ME...that could be ME. I don't think I ever had a desire to get drunk & go to the gym to work my "legs" as she stated...but I could hear the illness. That was my wake-up...the illness. She was sick & I had clients & patrions just buzzing with gossip & speculation. I thought "There by the Grace of God go I" . Did she make it to her hotel room? One she can't name ? I don't know. I had to put her in a cab & hope for the best. I share this story with you in hope you share a moment in your life that made you greatful to be sober. Greatful to help another sufferiing alcoholic. Happy Thoughts all-Surfs up

A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
