Hurricane relief

Today is a great day. I’m sitting in a prison in Florida; Hurricane Irma just hit us this morning; we have no power; the yard is about half flooded; and we’re all on lockdown. Despite all this, AA has taught me to accept all situations as the way God intended it to be at that moment.

And because I try my best to apply AA principles in all my affairs and to do the next right thing, I have earned favor at the prison where I currently live. While everyone was on lockdown, I got to help my boss in here.
