I was away in Canada for a bit and attended a meeting that was dedicated to the the oldtimers. I was just filled with awe in a sense..... as i first wondered why the first row was empty.... even tho i chose to sit in the second row, anyway, here were men and woman... opening the meeting with the How it Works, the steps..... and well we all know the meeting's format....... from 25 years sober to 47 years sober..... from the gentleman that gave out the one day at a time chip to geeez i dont even remember the if the 47 years got a chip.... Yet here was a meeting I never attended, and still felt the feeling you do in a room full of alcoholics, from the one that drank yesterday to the ones that haven't in 47 years... There were tears of gratitude for each other, and laughter for the tears. I never attended such a large meeting with so much sobriety and to know they all did it One Day at a Time...... thought i would share that......
