Random Awakening

Al Kohallek asked his sponsor, Lou-is what everyday miracles were and Lou-is replied; it was a miracle that I was willing to go to A.A. meetings everyday in the beginning. I let someone help me and then I passed that on was a miracle. I found myself not thinking of myself 24/7 that was a miracle. I was facing some of my fears and not running away, that was a miracle. When I pay attention to what others are sharing in meetings I am able to identify, that is a miracle. In other words spiritual recovery is an everyday miracle.
