Yesterday was a day of service.  I spent the majority of my Saturday with a bunch of drunks helping another.  We have a member of our group who has cancer.  Her house is in pretty rough shape.  We all got together and spent the day cleaning and clearing debris away in preparation for work being done on Monday and Tuesday.  It was great to see everyone, men and women, give selflessly of themselves to help someone else.  I would like to think this is something I would have done when I was drinking.  Probably but maybe not.  And the chance would be good that I wouldn’t have been able to do what I did to help because I would have been drinking before and after.  I know for me personally, I got more out of helping her than she got from me!  And that, I know is selfish, but that is what keeps me sober today.

We also had our birthday night at my group.  I was recognized for my 30 days.  Some how my card was lost between Wednesday and Saturday.  But it is all good.  My good friend Ann was there as well as my wife.  All in all it was a great evening and I look forward to many more!  As I always say, it is one day at a time.  No looking to the future!
