So I’ve been going to the young people’s AA meeting the last 6 weeks or so and it’s a fantastic meeting even though most of the kiddos are younger than me. There’s definitely some good sobriety there. And though they are all super welcoming to everyone, it’s pretty clear that the main group is very close and has been so for a long time. They literally do everything together, which I think is great, but I did kinda feel like an outsider, which is also fine bc I have plenty of friends in various meetings.
Anyway, before this starts to sound like a vent thread, one of the guys came back from Utah today and he brought gifts. Well it turns out he brought one for me and said well I guess you’re part of the crew now. I was seriously moved by that. Even more so because I was feeling a little down and lonely today (another story for another thread).
It’s amazing what this program can do if we just surrender and let things happen.
