Slow Sunday

Artist Guido Daniele paints hands as various animals.
The girls went out to dinner last night and then on to see Dream Girls, which was really good. I cannot believe how talented the performers were. Eddie Murphy was understated but hilarious as usual. The actress who portrayed Effie gave a superb performance.
Whenever I go anywhere with a bunch of funny people, I award the "line of the night." Last night's line went to C., our kindie teacher. When Beyonce was meeting with Hollywood executives behind her husband's back, John Lithglow played the exec. He had shoulder length, gray, greasy-looking, wavy hair. C. cracked, "He looks like Benjamin Franklin" and we could not stop laughing. If you see Dream Girls, watch for Lithgow's brief appearance, and I'm sure you'll laugh at the resemblance as well.
We all had a great time. It was good for us to get away together and get to know each other better. What's so great about the rooms is that at the table were two women on disability, one kindergarten teacher, a realtor, the wife of an attorney (she also caters), and an insurance underwriter. Income ranges at the table were probably from $300,000 to $12,000 annually. Where else can you put these different backgrounds together and yet have so much in common?
I never thought I'd say I was grateful to be an addict or an alcoholic, but today, I am.

It's VERY cool that so many of us from different backgrounds can find recovery together. We are all more alike than we knew!
Doggy face on hand...awesome!

I have often sat in a womens meeting....looked around at all the differences...age,race,economic... and thought to myself how great that the search for a common solution of a happy/joyous/free life has brought us all together.

Amen sister. I count my blessings everyday. The fellowship is the best thing that ever happened to me and I wouldn't have it if I was a normie!
