My A.A. Birthday

Post by Dan2000 » Tue Jun 28, 2016 9:12 pm

I'm a little late in posting, somewhat new to this forum, have found this group to be very interesting and helpful.

Thanking God for A.A., I would surely be dead, if it wasn't for this program and everyone in it. :D

I celebrated 24 years on 5-19-2016

Hi all....

....One day at a time....I've recently have gotten 25 years sobriety....

....I never liked to stumble or make mistakes, as that would show how vulnerable I was.... Prior to sobriety I wore the heavy mask of Ego.... I am human, I will falter at times....mistakes bring about growth....we must crawl and fall, before we learn to walk and stand....

....The Lessons in my Life are all turning into, the Blessings in my Life....

....The Miracle happens when we get sober. The Magic happens, when we apply the principles in all our affairs....

God Bless Dan2000

Happy B-Day as a 1/4 century is a huge milestone. Thank goodness for the halls of AA and the promises as I would of never made it.
Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It's the best part of the day.
