“Patience, tolerance,

understanding and love

are the watchwords.

Show him these things

in yourself

and they will be

reflected back to you

from him.”


BB p 118


As with most of the Big Book suggestions,

they will work for every soul on this earth,

not just the drunk.

As a daily affirmation say something to the affect

that if I wish to have others show me patience, tolerance,

understanding and love, to receive them,

I must first give them away.

Today, remember that you are a mirror

and what you project

will be reflected back to you.

Smile, you are on God’s candid camera.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
