Gratitude In and For Alcoholics Anonymous
Gratitude is one of the words that enter my mind when I think of my journey within Alcoholics Anonymous. Prior to surrendering; Joining the winning side.
I thought I was grateful in all my higher power had blessed me with,
I didn’t realize that being grateful to my understanding is an action word. I didn’t realize that being grateful to my understanding is an action word.
I was going to know a new way of life if I followed a few simple suggestions.
A new way of life?
Without alcohol or drugs?
Drugs and alcohol had been my answer and solution to every moment I drew a breath, Even the times it took my breath.
I had no idea how recovery would work, I didn’t care how it would work.
I saw with my eyes the men and women who came before me, it worked.
I was at ease for the first time in my life. I was at ease, That itself is a gift.
I was told ”you don’t have to know anything we will teach you.”
I didn’t question anything, after all what did I know about being sober?
I took action; I did whatever was suggested of me.
I had been given the gift of desperation, Which has lead me down a path where I pride myself on being a follower.
I am guided by my higher power; GOD, my sponsor, my home group, my support network and Service.
