spiritual principles,

at first because we must,

then because we ought to,

and ultimately because

we love the kind of life

such obedience brings.”


Twelve and Twelve, p. 174


The first three spiritual principles that we learn

are Honesty, Open-mindedness and Willingness;

and these open our eyes to chance, choice and change.

Chance began when you found the rooms of A.A.

and your Higher Power gave you the opportunity

to discover sobriety.

Choice,  do the next right thing,

follow the simple suggestions.

Change will occur in spite of your self

as long as you are willing to do the work.

The must dos will become the should dos

and eventually you will want to love doing

those things that gives you a life that is beyond

happy, joyous an free.

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.
