Work Or Wait

(Thank you all for the prayers and good wishes. It is very painful, but I’m on the mend)
I know there are times when I hear a member of the Program talk about the Steps, about dragging their feet in completing them. It’s also said that we only work the Steps once, but I think they were talking about Steps 1 through 9, as Steps 10,11, and 12 are considered the “maintenance” Steps, and are “worked” continually. But we each define how we work the Steps, individually. I just know that it was important for me to complete the Steps, the sooner I did, the better I felt. Although there was the 4th Step, that one took me a couple of years and there were some memories that were difficult to “walk” through. I felt really good when I finally finished it. Truly a load off my shoulders. The Program works, because the Steps work – but it’s important to work the Steps. Procrastination is not my “friend” when it comes to recovery, Alcoholics Anonymous is my DEAREST FRIEND!!!
Time to sleep. Blessed for sure!!!


One thought on “Work Or Wait

  1. Thank the Lord for this day and for all that is in it.
    My times are in His hand.
    My soul rests with Him, my Anamchara.

    In the magnanimous God story He says, “I will be your God………….” Then he goes on to say, “and you will be my people”. So I’m told that quite often in the parochial schools the students are instructed to remember the 5 G’s; “The Greatest Gift God Gives is God”.
    So there you have it!
    So now I have it!
    This is the grandest understanding of God as I understand him.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted 12 stepper.
