I believe in service work, particularly sponsorship of other women in the Program. Service keeps the doors open, and provides a place for both newcomer and old timer, and all those “in-betweeners” to meet and share their experience, strength and hope with each other. The Program helps us to get sober, but it is the Fellowship that keeps us in recovery.
On another note, service also comes in the form of being there when one of us is ill. We lost a very dear friend last night. She would’ve had 35 yrs in March. Her name was Amanda H. She paved the road for my spiritual journey, and will continue to guide me from Heaven. Thank you for your prayers. She is now at peace.
