A Simple Miracle

A woman thanks AA for giving her back her husband

I was cleaning out my desk the other day, and came across a copy of a letter sent to me by the wife of a fellow AA. I had been asked by members of my group to submit this to the Grapevine when I first read it aloud at a meeting shortly after receiving it, and it became lost amongst the clutter of many files. I'm still working on these two of the many defects that are always making return appearances in my life--procrastination and getting organized!

The letter was about a wonderful group member named Paul. He'd struggled many years with getting sober, and in 2001 he found what he needed at Alcoholics Anonymous--his Higher Power and true fellowship--and stayed sober until he passed away in October of 2004.
