These people never behave as if they have all the answers. They never lord their years over anyone. They never take a condescending attitude towards anyone. These are my role models in AA.
I do not aspire to be an AA know-it-all. I don't want to be an AA luminary. I want to be the person on the regular old phone list who people know they can call. That is all.
My daughter has been here most of the weekend and has gotten to spend time with these people... there have been lots of people through this house this weekend, and they are all sober. She has gotten to see a wonderful side of AA - one you might not really realize is there if you are going to meetings, but not getting plugged into the fellowship.
I am so grateful. I feel so blessed.
If you are new to AA, please avail yourself of the fellowship. If no one asks you to coffee, ask someone else, and be that miracle for someone else. The friendships we make in this program are the most incredible things. I am so so so so so grateful.
