This week we continued our meeting structure from last week. We read the entire story from the AA Big Book “Gratitude In Action” and then we discussed it together. It was much easier to focus on the highlights and maintain our momentum this way.

Then, we listened to the song by Bette Midler, The Rose. This song is an example of how love is really about giving and nurturing the growth of another to be fully who they are and not who we want them to be.

For next week, I would like us to do the same: before the group, read and highlight the next story “Women Suffer Too” and then we can share our personal reflections of the story.

We discussed as a group that it is much easier to focus on just one thing, rather than dividing the group into different sections. So, after we finish the 4 Absolutes, going forward, we will read and share on the stories before beginning a new AA Big Book step study using The Unofficial Guide and the Big Book Workbook.

I am so grateful to be sharing this journey with all of you!

Thank you all for sharing your experience, strength and hope.

“Together we can do what we can never do alone.”

In love and service,
