Bob opens his talk saying, “Instead of asking God to give me the strength, I thank God for the strength he’s already given me, and I thank God for the ability to speak clearly, tell the truth and carry the message of hope tonight.” Once he got to an OA meeting he stayed and did what his sponsor said and got service commitments. Later on his sponsor asked, “What do you want to do with the rest of your life?” He felt like a deer in the headlights – He had never considered that since he didn’t think he’d live very long. Encouraged by his sponsor he was able to go back to school and get his dream job of being an aircraft mechanic. By example he shows that it’s not just about the weight.
