“… for if my actions
have harmed someone,
I make a daily effort
to cause no futher harm.
I have mend my ways,”
Daily Reflections, p. 265
To make amends means to change,
as in the “Amendments to the Constitution”
are changes that our forefathers made after the fact.
(History lesson for all, not just Americans.)
Not only do we make direct amends by apologizing
to those we have harmed, the most important
amends is to change old behaviors and
refrain from harming anyone again.
We need to ‘mend our ways,’ and become the person
our Higher Power wants us to be,
a kind and loving spouse, parent, friend
and fellow laborer in this journey we call life.
Today, be the best carrier of the A.A. message,
show everyone that the better way is a mended way.
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.
