just for today ...



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a meeting with a sponsee that I probably needed more than that person did; I'm sure I got more out of it. We read Step 4 in the Twelve/Twelve. I have read that many times, but they put some new stuff in there yesterday.

that I can share this with you -- from Just For Today...

... I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.

... I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes, and fit myself to it.


First a person should put his house together, then his town, then the world.
- Rabbi Israel Salanter

...and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. Priceless.

Thanks for letting me hear what I needed to hear today. I will not try to adjust anything.

Sponsees teach me a lot about my own recovery because I have to work hard on letting go and my character defects when I am around them.

Good suggestions from the Rabbi

I know that meeting with sponsees feeling :) It does put stuff in perspective.
