A big thank you and hugs for all


I just wanted to tell you all how much your support and friendship means to me. I don't know where I'd be without you but probably not on Day Thirteen. My alcohol counselor knows about this site cause I told her how important it was to me. She actually wrote me a "prescription" for recovery, which included coming here often!

I'm just so grateful to you all for supporting me and putting up with me when I was less of a human being than I'd like to be. With the help of God, AA, and my friends here I feel I'm going to make it this time, after all the false stops and restarts. I feel hope for the first time, real hope. And strength. Strength to admit my powerlessness over alcohol. And I just want to thank you all. I love you all very much. You may be far away in location but I hold you near to my heart.

I really want to keep that name. It's a reference to the verse in the book of Mathew where Jesus says, "That which you do unto the least of these, my brethren, you do unto me." So it has a deep meaning for me!

It reminds me that not only am I one of the least of these, but also when I do unto the least of these I am showing Him love, as He said to show others.

Oh believe me, I have, also zipped right thru 2 and 3 cause I'd given up my battle with the demon alcohol and realized that 'God' was the only one who could help me every minute of every day. So each day I thank Him for getting me thru the nite in one piece and I surrender my will to Him for safekeeping. When I keep it, it just tends to get in the way and I'm tired of tripping over it.
