Happy June, companions of my heart!
How joyous am I to share my DA recovery here with all of you!! I know that Summer is a time to be a little laid-back, to take it just a little easy. Oh I do so love losing all those layers, the hats, gloves, and all that jazzzzzz….. Yes, Summer is my lovely season, and recovery is my day-by-day diary.
Recovery, that one-day-at-a-time recovery is like a Lady Justice, blind-folded and at the ready for every new day’s work and wonders. And although I may be or feel “blind-folded,” because of this Spiritual Program, the sponsors, the meetings, the Co-Sponsor Step Study groups, all the tools and the brilliant, informative, transformative readings and interchanges, I am not blind-sided. I will repeat that: I am not blind-sided.
For me, the crux is the Steps and sharing my recovery with all of you. I feel/know I am not only not alone, it is not me and my Higher Power but me, HP, and all of you: God as You: the most sincere, authentic, heart-felt, hard-working recovering brothers and sisters ever. With complete earnest I say that I can be glad of my depression because without it, I would never have known this remedy: your kindness, your perception, your care. I would never have traded roads from in-the-dark diminutive, to in-the-light expansive. I am truly blessed. The promises are my anchor and you all are my buoy. Thank you for this exquisite fellowship, your love, your light, your caring. I will be holding your hands in my heart until we meet again.
