A Good Day to be Sober

The love and care that cherished members gave her prepared her to pass it on in tough times

I recall fondly the men in AA who “told it like it was.” Jack, during AA-related announcements, would raise his hand and proclaim, “AA is good!” Bill, a quiet oldtimer, would close every meeting by saying, “If no one told you they love you today, I love you.” Ed, a greeter and man of few words, would shake each person’s hand firmly, refusing to let go until he whispered, “It’s a good day to be sober.”
