So today is my home group’s monthly open/birthday meeting. I was tasked to be the speaker seeker and at first I was a little nervous about this as it was really short notice. I go to a group on Saturday nights called Keep it Simple and I have always enjoyed the wisdom shared in this group. In fact it’s one of the 3 groups that I considered to be my home group. I asked one of the members named Scott to come and speak and he was happy to come out. Pheww crisis averted because I think my group would have asked me to get up and do it if I couldn’t find one. I think I might end up chairing the meeting tonight too. Which is ok, but I am supposed to chair on Friday as well so as long as that is not an issue then that will be ok. I guess I will need to go early again and setup, I also need to swing by the store and pick up our group cake. My friend Taylor might be coming tonight too, which is really cool. She is a member of the Al-Anon fellowship and I had a hand in planting the seed and encouraging her to go. I’m very happy to see her enjoying it and getting something out of the rooms.
And here I am trying to decide what to do about setting up for the meeting. I am curious if Vic will show up even earlier than normal. I have been tasked with getting the cake for the group and potentially chairing the meeting . No small order, in fact I almost think maybe I am doing too much right now. I have alot of my own recovery work to do but I know that being of service to the program is an important part of my program. At least that’s what I am told. And it looks like Taylor will be coming for sure, I have received messages from people and no phone call from the speaker, so I am going to assume no news is good news.
I’ll post this up for now, and maybe I will update later today. Perhaps tomorrow, I guess I should wait and see how tonight goes as it could be along evening. I will need to be part of the clean up crew after the meeting.
