Losing Our Defects
We're not exactly garden variety personalities. We constantly demand and require attention and would die if we discovered we were not the center of a few lives. Often we want reassurances that we are coming across as the generous, honorable people we are striving to become. But soon we realize that our character defects and self-centeredness still plague us.

But the growth process is worth the pain as we find out we are gradually becoming the generous, honorable people that we want to be. Am I rid of my defects?
As the pain produces growth, I thank you, Lord, for the love that shines from my fellow addicts.

I am a warrior queen.
Live passionately tonight...
