You are a man of love, beauty, honesty and truth. You give/are the true meaning
of friendship. Your life reflects this. You give your heart and Soul to anyone

Ed just celebrated 8 years! I am so proud of him. I
went with him to the meeting where his sponsor gave him his 8 year coin.
Life has taken lots of turns in his life over the past year, yet still he
remained sober and active in his sobriety. We don't get to see each other as
much as we use to , but we stay in touch on the phone and when we can we
get together for lunch. . He still is and will always be very special
& dear to my heart. He was the first man I brought home to meet my husband.
Life is great, God is awesome!
Special Blessings to you my sweet dear friend. Keep following your heart and
stay close to your God. Keep that light always shining. KEEP ON KEEPING ON.
Much Love & Gratitude Donna
When Ed first came in we went to a lot meetings
together. He always read the promises. We now both can recite them,
which we did last night on the way home from the meeting and talked
about how they have come true in our lives today. What a Gift.
The Promises of A.A.
The Results of Applying
The 12 Step Program...One Day At A Time
If we are painstaking about this
phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We
are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past
nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and will
know peace. No matter far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our
experience can benifit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will
disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our
fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life
will change. Fear of people and economic insecurity will leave us. We will
intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will
suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among
us-sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work
