Default Root Beer and Twinkies

Root Beer and Twinkies

A little boy wanted to meet God. He knew
it was a long trip to where God lived,
so he packed his suitcase with Twinkies and a
six-pack of root beer and he started his journey.
When he had gone about three blocks, he
met an old man. He was sitting in the park
just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat
down next to him and opened his suitcase.
He was about to take a drink from his root beer
when he noticed that the old man looked hungry,
so he offered him a Twinkie.
He gratefully accepted it and smiled at him.
His smile was so pleasant that the boy wanted
to see it again, so he offered him a root beer.
Again, he smiled at him. The boy was delighted!
They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling,
but they never said a word.
As it grew dark, the boy realized how tired he
was, and he got up to leave, but before he had
gone more than a few steps, he turned around,
ran back to the old man, and gave him a hug.
He gave him his biggest smile ever.
When the boy opened the door to his own house
a short time later, his mother was surprised by
the look of joy on his face. She asked him,
"What did you do today that made you so happy? "
He replied, "I had lunch with God."
But before his mother could respond, he added,
"You know what?
God's got the most beautiful
smile I've ever seen!"
Meanwhile, the old man, also radiant with joy,
returned to his home. His son was stunned by the
look of peace on his face and he asked, "Dad,
what did you do today that made you so happy?"
He replied, "I ate Twinkies in the park with God."
However, before his son responded, he added,
"You know, he's much younger than I expected."
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,
a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest
compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of
which have the potential to turn a life around.
People come into our lives for a reason,
a season, or a lifetime. Embrace all equally!
"No matter what you have done up to this moment, you get 24 brand-new hours to spend every single day." --Brian Tracy
AA gives us an opportunity to recreate ourselves, with God's help, one day at a time. --Rufus K.
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. --Franklin D. Roosevelt
We stay sober and clean together - one day at a time!
God says that each of us is worth loving.
