"Banana Man"

During our lunch on the porch of the Catholic House, we had the opportunity to talk with "Banana Man," a recovering alcoholic. He told us of his new attitude and lifestyle without alcohol as he stopped by for a meal before going to his new job. He spoke of his relationship with God, the improved communication with his girlfriend, and his altogether clearer frame of mind. He shared his pride for his preferred form of prevention, food, for as he said, "I can save my meal and enjoy it bit by bit, and that person drinking is just worried about where the next one is coming from." He definitely gave us words to live by.
