Defects and Humility
All of us saw, for example, that we lacked honesty and tolerance,
that we were beset at times by attacks of self-pity or delusions of
personal grandeur. But while this was a humiliating experience, it
didn't necessarily mean that we had yet acquired much actual
humility. Though now recognized, our defects were still there.
Something had to be done about them.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Five) p. 58

Thought to Ponder
Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.

AA-related 'Alconym'
P R I D E  =  Personal Recovery Involves Deflating Ego.

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
