Wham!

I'm not talking about the old George Michaels band either. I met with my sponsor yesterday for a chat and to return the pickup truck to the Alano Club following the campout. We usually have a double shot esspresso on the rocks. I love one a week. Just social use. Both of us are the geeky computer types and besides talking about recovery, we discuss computers. While talking with him, I see another member of AA coming into the little drive-in where we are at. So the three of us sat and contemplated world events. Then the guy that just came in says,"Are you ready to deliver a computer?" I was clueless. Then they broke the news that this new computer was for me! I was dumb struck, numb and speechless. I think I muttered something like "why for me" or something similar, and it was for just doing what I love to do, and that is helping others. I almost started crying. I have computers, but nothing close to as nice as this machine.

We took it to my place, and dropped it off, then my sponsor and I went to drop off Fred's truck. We then went up to Eagle Creek near Leavenworth, to drop off a computer for his son and his family. Back into the mountains and forest again. It was so peaceful. His son and wife and kids were very cool. There is a lot of love there and I knew it would not have become, without the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. Ok, now I'll start crying, but this is all such a gift and none of my doing except choosing not to drink today, touching the principles and living by the Golden Rule.

I am feeling a lot of gratitude today, not just for the material thing, but for the hearts in this program. I love alcoholics. Especially the ones in AA.
