The beauty of it was that it wasn't a spur of the moment idea. It had been planned since the middle of last year. Many residents worked on the project, decorating the hall, planning the menu, and acting as ushers and providing the music. The event was indistinguishable from any similar occasion. With one exception: No alcohol was served or allowed on the premises.
It was a suitable exception for an event that was hosted and put together by a group of recovering addicts and alcoholics.
As I watched the event unfold I had a brief fantasy of how the gathering would have turned out had the participants been living the lives they once did before becoming part of TLC's extended family.
Congratulations Tiffany and John!
