From that ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee to AA's General Service Office. What's your take on service?

Gaaaaaaaag . . . you wouldn't believe how fast my broadband is now that hubby has done some adjusting to his antenna configuration on the roof . . . he brought my phone into the kitchen and showed me 4 BARS . . . whereas before i was happy to get 2 bars right next to the signal optimizer doohicky. We are grabbing signals from the air for both phone and internet . . . proof that hubby can dream and then achieve . . . with time . . . !!

Anyway, the reason I am posting this here is to just share that when the internet wasn't working, at first i was annoyed but then I started really enjoying it!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah sooooo nice. . . . but then I came back and started reading some shares and I was re-awakened to the wonderful world of AA recovery and so grateful that following the instructions has been so successful in my life, thanks to all sharing about the success they've acheived.

Who would have thought that I would be able to have a fulfilling family life? Not what this alcoholic expected, although I always dreamed. So like hubby and his internet connection, raising the antenna on the roof, I hope I can keep climbing to find the connection to all of you -- through this wonderful band of bonding . . .

much love,

Great share...

And he did all that through snow and ice on the roof. Sounds like he's a keeper :)

Glad you're here, and thanks for your service

Together, we don't have to cave in or wimp out to that Fatal First One, no matter what today!

You & I had a similar experience Ann! Our Christmas "gift" if I might be so bold lol.

Glad you are here.
