This morning my daughter and I went to the 6:30 meeting. There was a young man there with a badly bruised face, including two black eyes, who raised his hand. He never once smiled during that meeting. Oh, it hurt to look at him. My daughter talked about being new (now that she will celebrate a year on Thursday) and erasing every single phone number in her phone and replacing them with the women in her AA group. Sitting one day on her front porch, smoking a cigarette and just punching in a number at random because she didn't know anyone... and just saying "hi, how are you?" and the voice on the other end asking "who is this?" the rest is history as this woman is now her sponsor. She has taken my darling daughter through all of the twelve steps using the big book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Praise God.
What a joy it is to have a sober daughter.
It seems that a lot of people have a lot of things going on right now. I am grateful that I am someone who can be called when there are things going on. I have been busy busy busy all day long.
And I also need to say that my blog is not a democracy. This is my blog. If you want to advertise something you need to take it elsewhere. Particularly if you have some agenda contrary to AA. I will no longer allow you to try to hijack some of my readers. I am going to be a lot more free with my delete button in the future.
