July 2013: Everyone on the Bus

Once her fun idea took off, her love for service got rolling

“The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round. The wheels on the bus go round and round all through the town.” Imagine five grown women singing this song in a van on the way to present a delegate’s report.

Service has been a very important part of my journey through AA. It all started when I complained once that no one came to open up a meeting I used to attend. They said they could fix that: they gave me a key, and I became the new room opener. I’ve since learned never to complain when a service position wasn’t being done right; I could end up doing that job.
