Serenity on Aisle Nine

1 min read

On Thanksgiving Day, our area adds an extra meeting for people to attend. Emotions from anticipating family and food are high and that makes this holiday meeting so intimate and lifesaving. One year we couldn’t use any of our regular meeting places, so we decided to meet in the lounge and snack area of a local grocery store that was open for business.

People always laugh now when they hear about we compulsive overeaters racing over to the grocery store on Thanksgiving Day, but for us, it was real recovery. During our closing with the Serenity Prayer, we heard a snappy little jingle for cake mix. But we were united, brimming with joy at our serenity and peace.
