I have been experiencing God shots for a long time. I always appreciated them. Did I take them seriously? That is a different story. Now daily miracles happen to me and I learned to notice them. However, there are occasions when God shots are simply shocking. Maybe just to me. Both of these took place today:
I was taking out the garbage. On the way to the trashcans, I saw to men standing at my neighbor’s patio. One of them kept looking at me and said: “Hi, how are you? I think we know each other.” I said hi and asked him where does he think we met. His answer was: “At the friends of Bill W.”. Whoa…indeed! We went to the same meetings few times in a different city (!!). He sightly shook his head and said: “God shot!”. It turned out that my neighbor tries to quit drinking and she just joined AA. The guys were helping her. We had a nice conversation. Now my neighbor knows that I am also here if she needs anything.
Later, I went to the hair salon to get a haircut. Last week I walked over there but I had to set up an appointment because they were busy. I started chatting with my stylist. Somehow the conversation led to the subject of addiction. I don’t even remember how. She is an alcoholic, she goes to AA, and she attends group therapy at an outpatient clinic. H. goes to the same clinic twice a week. We talked for almost two hours way after my hair was done.
