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.

Keep it Simple

Each day comes bearing its gifts. Untie the ribbons.
—Ruth Ann Schabacker—
How full life can be! We can untie the ribbons on this gift by keeping our spirits open. Open to life. Open to how much our Higher Power love

us. Who knows what the gifts the day may bring? Maybe it brings a solution to a problem. Maybe it brings the smile of a child. Maybe we’ll find a

new friend. Whatever gifts the day brings, we must be able to receive them. How do we do this? We keep our spirit open and lively through

prayer and meditation. Then we’ll be awake to see the beauty and the wonders life holds for us.
Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, remind me to pray to You often. Remind me to stop and listen to You. Remind me that You love me very much.
Action for the Day:  At the end of the day, I’ll take time to list the gifts I’ve been given today. This will be first on my list: I am sober.

For Us, It Is A Result Of The Promises, We Are Grateful.

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 we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit 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 of 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 for them.
