a careful sense of timing,
courage, and prudence –
-these are the qualities
we shall need when we
take Step Nine.”
Twelve and Twelve, p. 83
Sorry does not cut it.
Telling someone who loves you and trust you
that you cheated, lied and stole from them
is not wise, a very big mistake.
It is suggested that you have a sponsor,
someone who has heard your Fifth Step,
a person who has been there and done that,
someone who can guide you around
the pot holes and bobby traps that the Ninth Step
can put in the way of your recovery.
This is a ‘we’ program, use their experience
to make your life easier and with fewer mistakes.
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.
