Tonight I am tired. But in a good way. I got to spend time ah=gain with two young men that mean the world to me. They have been my friends and family for quite a few years now. I met them about 8 or nine years ago and we have just gotten closer every year. I live here in Florida and they live in central New York. But that distance doesn’t keep us a part. When I moved here 8 years ago in January of 2011, the very first year I was here, they came to visit. We had a ball, and every year since we have enjoyed without a doubt.
I never would have been able to hang out with these guys if I had not first gotten well. So tonight I say I owe who and what I am to my recovery in AA and my Higher Power. Without either one I am nothing!
Read this in my Daily Reflections today….
I can be free of my old enslaving self. After a while I recognize, and believe in, the good within myself. I see that I have been loved back to recovery by my Higher Power, who envelops me. My Higher Power becomes that source of love and strength that is performing a continuing miracle in me. I am sober . . . and I am grateful.
