Pay The Price



“For anything worth having

one must pay the price;

and the price is always

work, patience, love,

and self-sacrifice”


~ John Burroughs



Unfortunately we cannot have it all

just by saying the magic words,

clicking our heels together,

rubbing the genie’s lamp,

twitching one’s nose

or by the snapping of our fingers.

Today, do the next right thing, know that

all prayers are answered in God’s time,

and love is the key to all of life’s dreams.

Today, know that what you give of yourself

is the price one pays for happiness.

Recovery is getting what you pay for.

Sobriety is a gift from a loving Higher Power.
