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

As contagion of sickness makes sickness, contagion of trust makes trust. —Marianne Moore—

Attitudes give birth to themselves. fresh ideas foster fresh responses to old and new situations. Each of us is favored with responses from others that generally match those we’ve shared,too. We should never be surprised by how others treat us. We have been their teachers in every instance. Giving love invites it. Expressions of honesty encourages that, too. We must only expect that hatefulness and dishonesty will greet us if we’ve offered nothing more to others. We should always be aware of the power of our attitudes and behavior towards others. They will bring favor or disfavor upon us. We should be mindful,

too, that joy is contagious—as are respectful behavior, a trusting attitude, and gratitude. We are charged with the responsibility for creating a better world in which to live. Peace and happiness begin here, now, with each of us. Peace, joy, and good fortune will accompany me on my trip today if I do my individual part to spread it.
