Oh, and the meeting was good too. The topic was fear, but we talked about recovery from alcoholism.
A woman got up in the middle of the meeting and came back at the end. She went somewhere at 7:30 on a Sunday morning and purchased ~2 dozen white roses. When she came back, she walked around and gave one to each of the men for Father's Day. It was very touching.
I loved to look around the room at all the big tough men holding their white roses so tenderly.
Sometimes AA meetings are a lot more than just a meeting.
