Keeping it simple was the order of the day when I was new, as there was much to learn and comprehend. Of course, being the little smarty pants that I was; I tried to finish all Twelve Steps in a couple of weeks – which was promptly rejected by my sponsor. This was not a class, it was not something I would “learn” and then move on, it was a life changing, emotional balancing act that would require my participation for the rest of my life. This was a major life change in both thought and deed. It has taken a lot of people in the Program to “put me together,” again, LOL. The Program of A.A. has been a challenge, a blessing, and a personal discovery that has brought me to the edge of my seat a time or two. As it has turned out I can truthfully say that I continue to grow and change through the Program, through my Higher Power, God, and through the experience, strength, and hope of all those who have shared this path with me.
