Endigar 375 ~ A Wide Arc of Gratitude

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

And, speaking for Dr. Bob and myself, I gratefully declare that had it not been for our wives, Anne and Lois, neither of us could have lived to see A.A.’s beginning.  (The A.A. Way of Life, page 67)

Am I capable of such generous tribute and gratitude to my wife, parents and friends, without whose support I might never have survived to reach A.A.’s doors? I will work on this and try to see the plan my Higher Power is showing me which links our lives together.



I am grateful for the support of my Father and late Mother, my sisters and brothers, and . . . a submissive woman whose devotion to me during some of my worst times allowed her entry past my best defenses.  I love her and I am deeply grateful for her magical appearance.  I must also thank myself for refusing to give up, and for finding a reason to live on in a post apocalyptic world.  I can give outwardly only what I can accept inwardly.

I am grateful that my children have survived and now thrive beyond ground zero of the apocalyptic event of 2003, and that my former wife is now my friend.
