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

No man is an island of itself. Each is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. —John Donne—

Our problem seems so singular; we often feel alone with our struggles. And it’s true that each of us must come to our own terms with whatever situations face us. But no struggle facing us is free from the influence of other people and their struggles. We have shared destiny which is accompanied by individual perceptions and both singular and mutual responses to the ebb and flow enfolding us all.
Knowing that we share this journey offers comfort when we need it in our daily struggles. We are not alone, forgotten, or unimportant to the destiny of others. Nor are others without meaning in the experiences we’re gifted with. Our existences are mutual—we are interdependent contributors to the total life cycle.
What each of us learns eases the struggles of another. All experiences are meant for the good of us all.
Today I may feel alone, but I’m not. My life is fully in concert with those around me, and all as it should be.
