To Grow

November Roses 058



“When I accept


as they are,

not as I wish

them to be,

then I can begin

to grow and have

serenity and peace of mind.”


Daily Reflections,  p. 271


Wishes, just like expectations,

are resentments waiting to be born.

 ” …Resentment is the “number one” offender.

It destroys more alcoholics than anything else.

From it stem all forms of spiritual disease,… “

Big Book page 64

Work the Steps,

accept that you are an alcoholic,

accept the this world is exactly the way

God wants it to be.

Have faith, no one is ever too old

to stop growing, to stop learning,

to be able to change their attitude when

they realize that their serenity and peace of mind

are being affected.

Today, ignore the affect and do the accept.

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.
