A Member In The Making
I'm home, it's Sat. 5:00 p.m. I just finished an 8 hour long testing session, ridiculously required from teachers in this state. It's OK, but after 12 successful teaching years? It contained 320 questions, 9 of them two-page-essay questions. I'm exhausted, I think. Immediately I remember that my sister recommended for me to look over the purpose and principles of this organization in an aim to offer some help with my constant depression. I'm too tired I think, but just to check if this organization even exists I decide to surf the net for it. Alas! There it is. So, let me bookmark this address for later inspection, I'm so tired. But wait, there is a Welcome Message. Let me see what this is all about. The horror word "EMPTINESS" jumps at my face. Yes, that's the only feeling I can truly identify with in life. Patterns of Codependency, am I one of these addicts? No longer so tired, but rather avid for information I read and read. Finally 4 1/2 hours later... HOPE, a new feeling in my heart, and a new word in my lexicon! Yes, I am one of them! Thank you God, it's starting to make sense. I print all the information, and quickly assess which of the meetings I can catch first. I can't wait to meet my brothers and sisters. Thank you Higher Power!
