Our Former Follies

Dec 1 pansies 012


“We did not always

come closer to wisdom

by reason of our virtues,

our better understanding

is often rooted in

the pains of our former follies.”


As Bill Sees It, p. 31


Sobriety is no guarantee that the

recovering alcoholic will become a wise sage,

but it is almost certain that trying not to repeat

their past follies will make them a little smarter.

It is suggested that anyone who is trying to stay sober

should go to the meetings of A. A. because the disease

of alcoholism has a built in forgetter

and those who forget their past follies

are usually doomed to repeat them.

Today, show everyone how wise you are

by practicing the spiritual principles

in all of your affairs.

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.
