Next weekend, I'm flying back home to get some help from my family choosing a car. I'm really exciting because I was talking to my dad about some questions to ask on my car quest and he offered to fly me down as an early birthday present.
I was really surprised because I hadn't even considered that as an option. So I booked a flight after my work next Friday and will hopefully be driving back up Sunday evening with my new car!
What makes this all so amazing to me is that my relationship with my family has not always been like this. Through the amends process and continuing to be a good daughter, which means being self-sufficient and a contributing member of my family instead of the massive drain I was, that relationship continues to be healed. I wanted everything to happened immediately after I got sober, like I'm sober everyone so get over all the past stuff and give me some praise for the fact I'm not screwing you over on a regular basis. Oy vey- I'm grateful this Power that keeps me sober continues to chance my attitude and perspective.
