“Keep me away from
the wisdom which
does not cry,
the philosophy which
does not laugh,
and the greatness
which does not bow before children.”
~ Kahlil Gibran
The spiritual foundation of life is feelings.
As a drunk I cried at parties and joyous events,
I laughed during funerals and at serious occasions.
Alcoholism distorted and screwed up my feelings
so I was always on the wrong side of the tracks.
AA has restored me to a sane way of thinking and
today, with the help of the fellowship, a sponsor,
the Big Book and other tools, I now know how
to feel like a child, act like an adult and to enjoy
those feelings which allow me to live life
on God’s terms.
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.
