The Wilson House experience . . .

I mentioned a couple weeks back that I was scheduled to go to VT to facilitate a workshop at the Wilson House.  That’s the Bill Wilson House. And for any of you reading this who are in AA, you can only imagine what a thrill this was for me to have been asked to lead […]

To shift one’s perception is transformative.

I was first introduced to the idea of shifting my perception in the book: A COURSE IN MIRACLES.  The book had no real author, at least there wasn’t a name on the book’s spine.  One of my husband’s sisters gave the set of books (originally there were 3 books in the set) to us as […]

Wilson House, here I come . . .

I am absolutely thrilled to have been invited to present a workshop at the Bill Wilson House in East Dorset, VT.  For one thing, I have never been to VT.  And secondly, I think I can safely speak for any one in AA when I say that to present a program there, feels like a […]

Those who cross our path . . .

I have spent long hours thinking about and then treasuring all the encounters I have had in my nearly 75 years of living.  In my youth, it never dawned on me, of course, that the people I met “had been sent;” had been part of the divine journey that was mine and only mine.  Even […]

Time passes so quickly. . .

I looked at the date of my last post and was shocked.  It has been over a month since I connected with the readers of this blog.  Please accept my apology.  Travel took me away from this particular task and then regrouping after all the travel took it’s toll too.  I am becoming a bit […]

One’s path is divine. . .

I wouldn’t have agreed with this idea prior to recovery.  I wasn’t “a believer.”  Random acts ruled, as far as I was concerned.  I don’t remember any more when I began to shift my perspective.  Perhaps I had grown ready for the change in thinking when I came into Al-Anon in 1974. At least the […]

We are “called.” Those who join us are “called” too.

I find such comfort in the idea that we are “here, now,” intentionally.  I love the awareness that whomever I meet, only casually or quite seriously, was sent.  In fact, I had “requested” the meeting at a time and in a space I have long since forgotten about.  My first sponsor told me this in […]

When a friend is in need. . .

At the present time I have a very good friend and sponsee from the north visiting.  She is dear to my heart and has been for all 25 years of her recovery.  I met her at her first AA meeting, in fact, so have been able to observe her throughout her long sobriety.  The past […]

Our connections to one another are what heals the planet. . .

Over the years I have received hundreds, actually thousands of comments about the various blog posts I have written.  It’s my guess that you don’t really think that your comment is any thing very special, but I want to assure you that the opposite is true.  So very true.  Knowing that we have made a […]

Embracing acceptance nullifies any troubling experience.

I was at my AA home group this morning.  The topic was acceptance, a frequent choice, it seems.  And what’s unmistakably true is that it’s a necessary choice if we want to experience peace.  At no time in life will we be peaceful if we haven’t cultivated the practice of acceptance.  The good news is […]
