One of the special things about this program of recovery is how we develop such friendships. The people in meetings are there sharing with me and I with them. It creates a bond. And the most precious bond of all is that between a sponsor and a sponsee.
I have written before about what a great sponsor I have. I knew after meeting this person that he would be the one that I would ask. And I did that very night when we first talked. He knows a lot about me, as I do about him. When he told me last week that he is planning to move to the left coast in the fall, it really hit home how much a part of my life this person has become.
I cannot count the many cerci gifts that I have received from my sponsor. I truly appreciate all his wisdom and years in program. And all has been given out of friendship.
