The Nourishing Ingredient

walk around the block 040


“Where humility formerly stood

for a forced feeding

of humble pie,

it now begins to mean

the nourishing ingredient

that can give us serenity.”


Twelve and Twelve,  p. 74



As explained to me by a humble old timer

the secret to finding humility is very simple,

just let go and let God.

As one completes the steps one gains

a little bit of humility with every step,

a better understanding of the disease

and more faith in how the program works.

Today, believe that a life without chaos is

a promise that accompanies

understanding humility.

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.
