One Day at a Time in Al-Anon:

What’s so wonderful about Al-Anon? That it helps us to see ourselves as we really are. Al-Anon is wonderful for those of us who want to know ourselves, who are brave enough to acknowledge our faults. It helps us to examine, with courage and honesty, our good and bad qualities. Al-Anon works for those who want to build on the good and whittle away at the bad, until, one by one, we get rid of the self-deceptions that have kept us from growing into the kind of people we want to be. What do I want Al-Anon to do for me?

Today’s Reminder:

The Twelve Steps, the Slogans, the Serenity Prayer and the loving concern of other Al-Anon members—all these will help me if I am willing to cooperate. My share in the job of rehabilitating myself is to study and practice the program, to meditate and pray, to attend meetings and to help others to understand and live the Al-Anon way.

“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light; they that dwell in the land of the shadow… upon them shall the light shine.” — Isaiah
