Occasioned By Others



“If I feel that my pain

has in part been

occasioned by others,

I try to repeat,

“God grant me the serenity

to love their best,

and never fear their worst.”


As Bill Sees It,    p. 250


The Serenity Prayer teaches us

that the only thing that we can change is

ourselves, our attitudes and our outlook.

We may influence others by our new sober

way of living, but, there are no guarantees.

When in doubt, pray.

Pray for patience, tolerance, compassion

and the understanding to do the next right thing.

Love unconditionally

and never fear tough love.

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.
