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.

Promise of a New Day

Everything’s got a moral, if you can only find it. —Lewis Caroll—

To say that life is full of meaning is not to say that meaning is fixed or magical. Signs come to us from within, not from outside; The morals we can draw from the little dramas in our lives have to do with our own growth. We can learn from negative experiences as well as positive ones, and we need to applaud our own progress(it’s likely no one else will).

Only we can know how far we have traveled when we overcome a fear of speaking in public, or joining a volunteer telephone campaign. Or perhaps we learned to say “no” to the constant demands others make of us; were the only ones who recognize that advance, and we deserve to congratulate ourselves for it. Finding the morals in daily events can be an adventure. It’s good to take stock periodically; it helps us to see what progress we’ve made and to scale our expectations to the real place of our growth. Today I’ll hold a private viewing of some of my recent successes; I’ll be my own best audience.
