Being a GR
I've been elected to be the next GR for my home group. Tomorrow is the election and first meeting. I'm looking forward to this work. I think that if I can be of service to my home group in any way, then I'm going to do it. In fact, I think that my home group is great.
It's not a fancy building or a large group. We meet in an old Sunday school building that smells of mold and will eventually be refurbished. The setting is wonderful as it's under the shade of massive live oak trees. There aren't a lot of people that attend. Some Monday evenings, it's just a couple of us but we have a step study and a meeting anyway.
I prefer the small and intimate sharing of this group. There isn't any domination or control. Just a few people working on recovering from the effects of alcoholism. I know that my recovery will be based on helping others and on doing what I can for Al-Anon which has helped me tremendously.
