Real Or Fancied

house lanai 014


“We shall want to

hold ourselves to

the course of admitting

the things we have done,

meanwhile forgiving

the wrongs done us,

real or fancied.”


Twelve and Twelve,  pp. 81 & 82


As we work Step Eight, we list those we have harmed

and more importantly,  for those who have harmed us,

real or fancied,

we seek to see what part we and our disease

had to play in those situations and become

willing to make amends and forgive them all.

Who lied, who cheated, who stole

no longer matters,

two wrongs do not make a right,

what matters is that we clear the wreckage of the past,

forgive, and move on towards a life that accepts

the guidance of a loving Higher Power.

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.
