Belonging

Lowes flowers 4-09 086

.

“Until we had talked

with complete candor

of our conflicts,

and had listened

to someone else

do the same thing,

we still didn’t belong.”

.

Twelve and Twelve p 57

.

Going to a meeting and sitting in the Amen corner

not participating does no make you belong to A. A. .

There are many who have relapsed

that will tell you that for a long time

they were around A. A.,

but they were never into A. A. ,

they never belonged.

The only way to stay sober is to do the steps,

tell others of your struggles and conflicts and

learn to listen to those who have been there and done that,

allowing you to become a true member of A. A. .

Today, Service, Unity and Sobriety,

stay inside the circle.

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.
