I loved the sharing of you recent blessings from your recovery community.

One time in my life I was lost, broke, and frightened like never before. I was sober... but for how long?

I could tell the story, but not tonight.

Several men in the AA community opend doors for me in my turmoil, they helped me pay bills, provided a job... and a place to live if needed! This was September 1992 and a true blessing.
I am so happy that there are so many people in AA that help each other whenever, wherever, however they can, with no expectation of reward of repayment.

I have learned to practice serenityach in stead of preache

Pax,

Yes!
It is good to get back to this web page, oops, excuse me, It is great to Log into the AA world! And you have set it up in a manner that allows me immediate access to the recovery family.

At the noon meeting today I mentioned the web page to a few folks. They thought I was crazy, my sponsor did not think so!

The Step12.com world is actually the 12 Step Realm: "Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs."

The Step12.copm realm is a place for all to practice, experience and share the process of each step...

What the heck, It's great.

I learn a great deal, I am reminded of a bunch of stuff I say I forgot (actually have forgotten some).

I can go on and on.

Peace, Serenity, Recovery,

The Spiritman

Ah, Patrick me lad, you are truly one of a kind as I said before. You are an inspiration to me. Your sharing always has such a humble message that sticks with me.
My brother is/was an alcoholic, as was my sister and ME, family disease, damn right. I remember that I would talk to my mother and aunts and they would always say that they would be so happy if Walt would ever sober up and get his life together. Family is always waiting, and they are the first ones to welcome us back. They live for the day that we can finally find some purpose to live right. And when we find it they are overjoyed, sometimes we never know how much we have enhanced their lives, that we have given them joy and comfort. We have been touched by something that we cannot understand or explain, but we know that we have gained something that we didn't have before, but that our families always knew was there. You were fortunate to have an aunt that wanted to tell you how much you meant to her and how happy you have made her, she is proud of you. Those are great words for an alkie. I share your good feelings. Thanks for sharing that.
Take care and straight ahead, John.
