Pass it on Dude. Pass it on!

There is no possible way that I can repay Alcoholics Anonymous for the life I have now, for the lives that I have the opportunity to affect, and the drunks that might be saved, because I Stepped out of the darkness and into the Light. All I can do is say "Yes! Thank You." when I am asked. (PS: Greeter is the best job EVER!)
Cling to the thought that, in God's hands, the dark past is the greatest possession you have - the key to life and happiness for others. With it you can avert death and misery for them. page 124 BB

Awesome story.
This helped me today as I ham hanging with the family getting bossed around by every one. Praying "what is my role?" is awesome. I am going to go do that right now. It is always funny to me how family stress can be one of the biggest trigger. Thanks again.

I think that's because we can choose our friends, but we cannot choose our family members. We're stuck with 'em.

That was a beautiful story, it reminds me of all the gifts I would have missed if I picked up that next drink 4 yrs ago. Thank you for sharing.
