At the meeting tonight a man named Howie spoke of his gratitude to the program and of an enormous joy he had just experienced at helping another alcoholic to find the program. As he spoke his entire being radiated with an intense spirit; his eyes shone. This energy filled me. He was transformed before my sight into a unit of pure spirit. It was a beautiful moment I will remember.
Another man spoke of having the faith that whatever is meant to happen in your life will. Whatever is yours will come to you.
Tonight, impulsively, I call Grannie Helen. She told me that Uncle Charles has stopped drinking. He’s been in the program since March 17th, one week prior to my coming in. He speaks of how different his life is now. I am filled with such joy.
