Hey everyone , something happened tonight first just let me say that I am resting on my laurels,
I dont have a sponser at this time and havent for awhile now ,I havent been to a meeting in a very long time I was going to church alot I want to grow spiritualy , although I`ve been slacking on that as well I am not really intouch with any of my A.A.buddies that much anymore (I dont suggest this AT ALL! to anyone)
this is just my story
so a few months ago this girl I know from meetings moves in the apt right next to mine !! I know her so we talk whenever we see eachother she is going thru a rough spot in her life right now a breakup wich is why she lives next to me now they used to live a cross the street and the other one still does so any way shes been my neighbor for some time now
she is also recovering from a severe head injury a few yrs ago so shes on alot of meds plus her eyes arent so great due to the injury
she also knows my story we talk a lot
so tonight I`m at the laundry down the street its in a little plaza and of course theres a bar in that plaza I normally stay in the laundrymatt whille I`m doing my clothes but tonight I went outside and sat in my car for a few minutes to text my grandaughter I look up and who do I see come out of the bar with some others to look at someones bike and then go back in ?
my Neighbor /A.A. buddy I didnt know what to do I was so scared for her and I wanted to do something I was freakin like should I go in and get her or just mind my buissiness I dont THINK I was worried about me drinking if I went in
but I did have a weird feeling so I tryed to call the two A.A women that I still do talk to occasionally and of course they didnt answer so I stewed on it a little more and I decided to go in and ask her if she was ok
I went in she was right by the door getting ready to pay I walked over tapped her on the shoulder and said hey you ok?!!!! I asked if she was ready to go could I drive her home she said yes so we went to the Laundry so I could fold and we talked I dont know if this is a twelve step call cause I never went on one before I dont even know if I had any Buisiness at all going in and checking on her
alll I know is that I felt compelled to go help her even though I didnt quite know what to say to her when I did I told her I dont know why I really came in there after her except I was concerned for her I said I dont know if God sent me for her sake or for mine maybe it was my wake up call there but for the GRACE of GOD go I ?
It smelled really bad in there I was in there for only less than one minute
she smelled too !!
all I could say to her was that I wanted to be the hand of A.A
we talked about the Big Book on the way home when we got here I suggested she go in get some food shower and sit quietly and talk to GOD go to a meeting tommorrow call her sponsor ( cause she has one!)
the one thing I wanted to know was did she Pray this mornin and ask GOD to help her stay sober today she said she did she said she called her sponsor she said she called others but she said it didnt matter to her once she decided she was going to drink nothing else mattered
I prayed for her aswell but this is between her and GOD
and she says shes going to do the next right thing in the morning go to a meet.call her sponsor all I know is I tried to help her and I stayed sober
Amen it worked for me wow this is the most I`ve ever wrote at one time Guess I`m standin in for PAUL
( LUV YA PAUL you are in my prayers Cant wait for you to get back online)
