I have always liked Friday night the very best. When I was a kid, it was a time to have or go to a sleepover with friends. When I started drinking, it was the best night for drinking. When I started going to bars, it was absolutely the most exciting night to be at the bar. After I got sober, it was the best meeting night. I got sober at a group in a club, the club had dances every friday and saturday nights. I loved friday night meetings followed by friday night dances. Oh, the times we had!
My old home group's friday night meeting is now a mere smokey shadow of what it once was, so I don't go. I am now older and by friday night, I am dead on my feet, so I love to stay at home. I usually get to a meeting on saturday at 6:30 a.m.
This week I have reflected a lot on what an old boyfriend (AA member) used to say - something like "in the end, all you have are your memories, make sure they are good ones."
I have some wonderful, wonderful memories of my sober life. Thank you God!
