We are both full of love, gratitude, hope, serenity, and all of the things you take away from a huge gathering of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Words utterly fail me right now. I cannot begin to describe the experience of being at my first International Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous. Add to that the fact that I shared the experience with my daughter, who is now sober 16 and a half months - her first International as well, obviously. And my sponsor (not her first), her husband, old friends, new friends, blogger friends, friends I had never met before... it was all amazing.
I am happy to be heading back home to my own little corner of the world. Belonging is something I found in Alcoholics Anonymous, and it is something that I never take for granted. Thank God there is a place where I belong... in the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous - and also place called home. I am heading there.... two days of driving ahead.
