One of the Greatest Gifts

“…some friendships will last a lifetime… I will let myself enjoy the comfort, joys, and enduring quality of my friendships.” – The Language of Letting Go 

My first enduring friendship was with Johnny Reistetter. I went to preschool with him, then summer camp, and then spent summers in Puerto Vallarta, growing up with his family. He’s a normie and still is one of my very best friends. Next was my first sponsee, Mike M., who I still love and consider a dear friend. Today all my other best friends are in recovery, many of them are my sponsees. I love these men with all my heart, and feel their love for me right back into my heart. Because I work this program so diligently, applying it to every aspect of my life, my life is overflowing with friendship and love. And this gift of giving, sharing, loving and celebrating recovery through fellowship is one of the greatest gifts I have ever been given in my life, and a principle reason why, today, ILML!
