I spent Saturday with my daughter, the recovering alcoholic. It was a nice day. We were driving here and there getting this and that, we just have the most fun together. In the evening, as I was driving her to an AA dance after our portion of the day was over, she just said in the most casual way, "I love AA." I could have cried. I know that sentiment was not expressed for me, it was truly heartfelt. And it might have meant that she loves going to AA dances and dating AA men, but I have a feeling that is only a part of what she meant. Because earlier in the day she had met with her sponsor, she had gone to a noon meeting and attended the business meeting of her group. I think she has a pretty good feel for a well-rounded AA experience. And it is my experience that people who immerse themselves in the program and the fellowship tend to stay sober.
I better get ready for work. It is lovely to do this in the daylight! I might not wear mismatched socks for a while!
