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

To live is not merely to breathe, it is to act; it is to make use of our organs, senses, faculties, of all those parts of ourselves which gives us the feeling of existence.

—Jean-Jacques Rousseau—

We are gifted with talents that need encouragement in order to blossom. Few of us fully appreciate our talents. Many of us fail to utilize them. And yet they are waiting

for the invitation to present themselves.
We have been blessed with particular talents because the world we live in needs our individual involvement. Each of us is charged with a responsibility to contribute to

the lives around us. Our shared talents make the road smooth, when each of us acted as the need arose.
We are called to participate by our talents. They help define who we are. They affirm that we count, that we are needed. No one is without a capability, a characteristic

that lends just the right flavor to a situation involving others. Whether it’s a sense of humor, the ability to write or paint, or a talent for settling disputes, we each have

a calling card, and we are asked, daily, to make our contribution.
Am I willing today to participate fully in the life around me?
