Great Response

I was at a dear friend’s birthday party last night. She is a very kind, well-meaning, loving, compassionate person and I’m happy to have her in my life. Anyway, she was an attentive hostess and whenever a new guest arrived, she welcomed them and asked what they’d like to drink.

At one point, a friend of hers showed up who happens to be a recovering alcoholic. In the heat of the moment, my friend just wasn’t thinking and she asked her: “Would you like beer, red or white wine, or sparkling wine?”

Her guest gave a perfect answer: “Well, maybe tomorrow, but not today.”
Think about it. That’s the essence of recovery: taking it one day at a time.
