“We are only operating
a spiritual kindergarten
in which people are enabled
to get over drinking
and find the grace to go on
living to better effect.”
As Bill Sees It, p. 95
The Big Book makes no claims other than to say
that if you do what we have done
the compulsion and obsession to drink
will be removed.
The rest of the story, living a better life,
a life beyond your wildest dreams
are only promises that may happen
if you find the grace of a loving Higher Power.
A. A. will teach you the rudiments,
the basic A,B,C’s of making the changes
to recover from alcoholism,
the remainder of the education last a lifetime
and it is up to each individual as to what direction
and how that life should proceed.
Today is not Graduation Day,
it is Commencement Day,
so be ready and willing to change
and move on to a better life,
a life that is happy, joyous and 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.
