Experience, Strength and Hope

“Welcome to tonight’s meeting,” the woman said.  “Who wants to share?” A lady in the back slowly raised her hand.

“Hello I’m Sue,” she said.  “I haven’t been to a meeting in years, but my life is more than unmanageable.  I needed to be where I felt welcomed.  I have not had an alcoholic in my life for five years now, as he drank himself to death.”  She continued, “I still feel the chaos of life leaving me completely out of control and I just needed to come to a meeting.  Thanks for allowing me to join the group tonight.”
