Life's little lessons

More and more each day, her pre-kindergarten students remind her of the wonder of sobriety

I am a preschool teacher who also happens to be an alcoholic. I’m sober and have been living the AA way of life for seven years. Each week, I teach and care for a class of a dozen 4- and 5-year-old children in a faith-based school. The wonderment these kids have about the world around them continuously amazes me. And without ever knowing it, they remind me of the wonderment of my sobriety. And each day when they do, I just laugh and thank my Higher Power.
