Go Forward

pine is clouds 067


“Gratitude should go forward,

rather than backward.” (1)

“In other words, if you carry

the message to still others,

you will be making the best

possible repayment

for the help given you.” (2)


(1) Letter, 1959
(2) Twelve and Twelve, p. 110


Pay it forward, A. A. style,

many years before ‘pay it forward’

became the trendy by-word for the

“Normal” people.

Be grateful, go to a meeting,  be of service,

be kind, be patient and tolerant, be forgiving

and be the loving soul that your Higher Power

wants you to be.

Today, show your gratitude by helping

another alcoholic and know that the rewards

of peace of mind and serenity will be given to you.

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.
