I first became sober in the Philadelphia area and have since moved back to my upstate NY birth city. I miss Phila. so very much after spending nearly 30 yrs. there and the thing I am most grateful for today is the ability to determine right from wrong. I am wrong at times like everyone, but now I know how to make amends. Also, my home meeting in the Phila. area was called a "God as I understand him" meeting on Sun. mornings. I have looked all over this particular area I now live in and there is no "God . . ." meeting. So, in talking with my sponsor here, she told me to go ahead and start a "God . . ." meeting. Isn't it ironic how sponsors just seem to know what to say and when. Would love to chat with someone.

Great post. Yes, sponsors are empathic - because we all share the same experience and awakening! I am 25 years sober Jan 3rd. Same experience as you. And now my lady friend is 30 days sober and she is experiencing the same thing with her new sponsor.
