Our Folded Hands

Women helping Women. Reaching out to the Sister who still suffers. Helping each other through the Good times and the Difficult times. To get to the SOBER way of life, One Day at a Time.

Pretty Purple Flowers

Each day a new Beginning

¬†Woman must not be awed by that which has been built up around her; she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.¬† —Margaret Sanger—
Let us not stifle ourselves any longer. Let us dare to dream and realize those dreams. Let us dare to take risks,

having faith that to advance in any respect implies taking risks.

Fortunately, we have the support of the program and one another to cushion the fall, if it should come.

But more important, we have one another’s example to inspire us as we contemplate our own agenda for self-expression. Many of us for far too long passively watched others move forward. No longer need we be passive observers, but the familiarity of no action, no choice making, and irresponsibility, makes passivity attractive at times.

We must remember responsible choices, for only those make possible our very special contributions. Not every day do we awaken with the strength needed to “do our part.” But the strength will be available just as quickly as we call for it.

Alone, we are strugglers; however, we have a ready partnership, and it guarantees us guidance, wisdom, and strength when we ask for it. I have so much to offer other women. And I need another’s example. Every expression of my strength will boost another woman’s strength. I will give.
