AA Thought for the Day
Hello Everyone. I'm not sure what happened with the sending of today's Daily Thought.
I've contacted the developer of the program we use to send it and will get him to see if we
have a glitch from our move to the new server host. This has happened once quite a few
years ago. So I'm sending it again. My apologies for the lateness.

Simply we tell him that we will never get over drinking until we have done
our utmost to straighten out the past. We are there to sweep off our side
of the street, realizing that nothing worth while can be accomplished until
we do so, never trying to tell him what he should do. His faults are not
discussed. We stick to our own.

Garth, recovered alky by God's grace. I had a tough cowboy sponsor for 18 years. At first we did not like each other very much. But he took me through the steps and over the years we actually became friends. When it came to the 9th step the thing he emphasized was to not say I was sorry. They have heard that b.s. a thousand times. He also said that the best amends was a living amends, as demonstrated through my behavior over time.
