I went to another noontime AA meeting. It was so great seeing familiar faces and hearing familiar sayings. I should have been going to these meetings all along.
Wanda was there again. I find myself drawn to her like a familiar old blanket to soothe and comfort. We talked a long time after the meeting about our lives and where we want to go. She is a nurse and stays busy these days. I, on the other hand, have far too much time on my hands. I jokingly told her I would trade with her any day. She hugged my neck and said, "hang in there, kiddo."
