My Blessing For Today

Hi All,

Once I decided to live the sober life again (tried 4 years ago for 1 month), I had a real longing in my heart to try to find my old temporary sponsor. I went to Thursday and Friday meetings with no luck. I went to my Saturday morning meeting today and saw him across the room grinning at me from ear to ear.

I can't tell you how overjoyed I was to see him. He came over after the meeting and gave me a huge bear hug and the tears I've been holding up for 4 years all came out (I don't think this will cost me any man points. If so, I can deal with that).

Anyways, we spent 30 minutes talking and he's agreed to be my sponsor again! I know it's a long, long road ahead but, as I write this now, I am at peace.

Hi Racer,

He was there all along just waiting for you to ask for help again. Just like your Higher Power.

The tears are a good release and real men do cry, you know. I would guess he was just as emotional to see you back.

Good luck with those Steps. Life is just going to get better for you from now on.
Keep us posted on your journey.
