“I will remembe that my life is a miracle. Instead of resenting how busy I am, I will be thankful my life is so full.”

Most of us – if we’ve been in recovery for any length of time at all – have heard some member complaining in a meeting about being terribly overworked, too busy for meetings or sponsorship or other activities. In fact, we may have been the complaining member. The days seem so full: job, family and friends, meetings, activities, sponsorship, step work. “There just aren’t enough hours in the day,” the member complains, “to get everything done and meet everyone’s demands on my time!”

When this happens, usually there’s soft laughter from some of the other members – probabaly members who had planned to grumble about the same sort of thing. The laughter stems from our recogntion that we are complaining about the miracle of the life that is our today. Not so long ago, few of us were capable of having any of these “problems” in our life. We devoted all of our energy to maintaining our activeaddiction. Today we have full lives, complete with all the feelings and problems that go with living in reality

Just for Today: The programs works a miracle in our lives . . . .We become free to live.
