“Once we have placed
the key of willingness
in the lock
and have the door ever
so slightly open,
we find that we can
always open it some more.”
Twelve and Twelve p 35
It does not matter where you first found AA,
a nudge from the judge, family intervention,
fellow worker or from under a rock,
what counts is that at that very moment
you were handed the key to sobriety.
Find the lock by going to a few meetings,
by talking to the members of the fellowship.
All that is left is to push open the door of willingness
and walk into the sunlight.
Alcoholism locks the soul into a room of darkness,
a room that is filled with self, a room that will
eventually drive you insane.
Today, enjoy the light,
push open the door of willingness some more
and open it as wide as you can.
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.
