Love me, Love you

I believe that maintaining relationships is one of the hardest things we do in life. It’s easier to start a relationship than it is to keep it on an even keel. I believe that my partner in life and my daughter, have been the two people in my life who have truly loved me, just as I am, as well as all of my AA friends.  My partner was very accepting of my behavior and gave me lots of room for errors, while my daughter can be critical about my behavior and my life, in general. She is happy that I am in the Program, and again sober, but we live separate lives in many ways. Especially since I can no longer see my granddaughter. The Spiritual Principles have helped me be more lovable than I ever was before recovery. I am kinder and more willing to accept others as they are, not as I would have them. My faith, and the Program of Alcoholics Anonymous have afforded me opportunities for growth and change in my relationships with others. A daily inventory is helpful in reminding me of my part in any relationship that I have today. I am responsible for my own actions and words, just as others are responsible for theirs. Slowly I am learning…a day at a time!!!

Let us pray for those who’s lives were lost in France, and the world unrest. We are all blessed to be where we are today! Just for today!!! ❤❤❤

  1. Friends of Bill W Daily Reflections July 16
    JULY 16
    In every case, pain had been the price of admission into a
    new life. But this admission price had purchased more than
    we expected It brought a measure of humility, which we
    soon discovered to be a healer of pain.
    It was painful to give up trying to control my life, even
    though success eluded me, and when life got too rough, I
    drank to escape. Accepting life on life’s terms will be
    mastered through the humility I experience when I turn my
    will and my life over to the care of God, as I understand
    Him. With my life in God’s care, fear, uncertainty, and
    anger are no longer my response to those portions of life
    that I would rather not have happen to me. The pain of
    living through these times will be healed by the knowledge
    that I have received the spiritual strength to survive.
    My friends, if I am humble enough to acknowledge that I have received “a measure of humility”, I’ve come a long way!

  2. I really love the line reminding me that I receive humility by turning my will and my life over to the God of My Understanding.
    That is the action…not simply willing myself to be humble, but rather by asking God’s help AND being entirely ready to listen and accept the answer.
    Not a natural state for me, but I am learning, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly.
    Grateful for the Gift

  3. Top of the golden morning family,
    I needed to see, hear, digest these shares. Top shelf spiritual nourishment.
    Humility + Grace = Divine Mercy is pursing me. He wants to shower me with His mercy.

    It’s a good day to have His daily bread.

  4. Great share this am. I am having trouble looking at maintaining a relationship and at the same time making sure that my life is fulfilled with my life long bucket list. Many may not have the same time in life or circumstances. Something that my hp and I talk about everyday. God’s mercy and AA and all of you will bring me to an answer when the time is right, Great day for sweet corn in Iowa.

  5. We’re humbled by an honest acceptance of our defects and shortcomings.
    But for me to say I have achieved a measure of this elusive quality,says I have a long way to go!
