I just thought I would share my day today. It was something today surreal. And just beautiful.
My sponsor asked me if I wanted to take a little trip to the country south of Akron for a meeting. I of course said yes because I love going to different meetings.. So he said cool, we will go down and met "Nic" at his house. Well Nic is my grandsponsor that I have not ever met.. So I was excited for this.
So my sponsor shows up with two other guys and a mini van. Alright cool I know one guy and the other is fairly new and his sponsee. Awesome right , 4 guys road trip AA meeting on the way and back..
Well the surprises keep coming we met Nic and his lovely wife and then went out to dinner before the meeting . Nics Home Group. Now I couldnt of thought that the day was going to have more cool suprises in store for me. Till the meeting and I introduced myself to everyone as they came in. Like always.. And a gentelman said " Ahh Dylan I know you, and its a pleasure to meet you". As my mind circled and thought the poor old guy missed placed me for someone else. I surely never made it out to the middle of nowhere for this meeting 1 1/2 from home.. LOL...
Well jokes on me , it was my great grandsponsor. Don. And we got to talk after the meeting about his beginnings . In 1947, with his sponsor Norman Young (I am aloud to use his name, since he is no longer with us. Nor Anoymous, for he was one of the first hundred.. ). Norman went to speak to him at St. Thomas Hospital..
So I sat next to my sponsor, next to his sponsor, and next to his sponsor. 4 generations of AA. Holy moly it truly gets better and better...
I never had it so good.
Keep living the dream and stay on the beam.. :ghug3
Good love, Inda
