Had enough of my own 'morbid reflections' lately, thought i'd lighten the tone. After all is that not what God brought us all together for?
My best day sober by far was not long after i came in to stay almost 18 years ago. It was at my sons school sports day, he'd be an innocent 11 year old at the time and was just about as sick as me due to the effects of my alcoholism. It was the school marathon where all the young boys his age had to run around these huge playing fields i dont know how many times. Anyway he ran his heart out and came in fourth, just out of the prizes but boy did he give it all he had. And thats all i could ever ask for.
Since then i've had many great time sober, became a muture student and won a place at a prestigious college i put the roof on when i worked on the tools. Once there i gained some notable qualifications that got me jobs a guy like me could only dream about plus i've travelled the world and seen some breath taking sights, everything from cruising down the Panama Canal to visiting the tombs in Egypt's Valley of Kings. Also seen my 2 kids married off and the birth of 4 grandkids. But nothing, just nothing has ever come close to the heart warming feelings i had on that day.
And if it can happen for a sick guy like me who was led by the hand into AA, unemployed and unemployable and didnt know if it was New Year or New York?
And they say the best is yet to come, so dont give up before the miracle happens!
Love,light and laughter!
