This is going to be quick. I have to get ready for the 6:30 meeting. Last night I celebrated my birthday one more time. It was a speaker meeting and very very fun to look out as I was speaking and see my sponsor, her husband, two of my sponsees, so many friends, and the man who took me to my first meeting!
What a blessing it is to have lived these sober years. I hope to have many more sober years ahead. It is such a good life. Not a perfect life, but a good, good life.
Now I am off to Rob's 23rd birthday meeting!
"Life will take on new meaning. To watch people recover, to see them help others, to watch loneliness vanish, to see a fellowship grow up about you, to have a host of friends - this is an experience you must not miss. We know you will not want to miss it. Frequent contact with newcomers and with each other is the bright spot of our lives." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 89
