To impart new life or vigor to.
I must say that the past two days are just what the doctor ordered. Two glorious whole days to do something other than go to my job. I started to say not work, but I did do some of that.
I got all of my house cleaning chores done, groceries bought, errands ran. Ordered books from the library….I feel it in my bones, I’m about to go on a reading tangent. When I am in the mood to read, I go through at least a novel a day.
Went to church twice, to AA twice. I should be a spiritual giant, but both days on the way to AA I called some idiot driver a mother fucker. Nope – not a giant yet.
On a somber note. There was a guy in the meeting tonight that I have known for the 12 years I’ve lived in this city. He was sober when I first met him. Good looking full American Indian. Viet Nam vet – decorated hero. I don’t believe in the entire time I’ve known him that he has been able to stay sober more than a few months at a time. He cleans up pretty. Tall, thin, dark complected, beautiful black hair. Always wears a starched white western shirt and jeans.
Tonight he was sitting in the corner. So thin I could see the ribs through his dirty white t-shirt. He obviously hadn’t had a bath in days. He slept through most of the meeting. He roused when I called his name and said I love you Billy. He told me to come back tomorrow – he may be sober. I keep praying for that. Unfortunately I’ve seen so many die. If there was something I could say or do…something that I have not said or done before, God give me the words to help him.
