I am not the teacher of life, I am not the provider of answers, and I am not the giver of lessons – I am yet the student, the beginner, and the one searching for a way out of the darkness into the light of my Higher Power. When we join together, I learn; when we pray together, I grow; and when we share our experience, strength, and hope with each other – we all move closer to recovery. I have found forgiveness for myself and others – for all our flaws. It is not up to me to judge others, my job is to simply put one foot in front of the other and go forward in faith that God will provide all that I need for this now, this day and this here – that I may be of service in some manner to whomever I meet along the path on this “road to a happy destiny.”
