Grover's Big Book
A special gift which had traveled many miles had one more stop to go
The chilly wind was a reminder that Christmas was in the air. New Jersey John had gotten sober a couple of years earlier, so instead of dreading the holidays he looked forward to them with great anticipation. And why not? His whole life had been turned around since stepping foot in Alcoholics Anonymous.
After just a few short years in the Fellowship, he had the comfort of a loving wife and a big, beautiful new house. His life as an alcoholic was just a memory that he visited when sharing his experience, strength and hope.
