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

Nothing happens to any man that he is not formed by nature to bear.

—Marcus Aurelius Antoninus…
Reflecting on the past reveals that indeed we do find the strength and the ability to cope with whatever experiences ripple our calm. Moreover, we have come to accept that the tides of turmoil wash in new awarenesses, heightened perceptions, measurable calm. Tragedies are guaranteed to trigger first pain, then perceptible growth, and finally, tranquility. Over and over again we pass through these stages that are designed to nurture our fuller development as healthy human beings. Over and over we see that the tough times teach us what were ready to learn. We can look to the day ahead fully expecting to be strengthened enough to handle

whatever we’ve been readied to experience. Nothing will present itself that can’t be coped with. Today I can be certain of growing. I will meet the challenges in unison with my inner strength.
