Now I look back and see that everything that has happened has been a blesing and a necessary lesson so I could become a more joyful and helpful woman. What happened in my past is done now. I don't need to be ashamed because God is in all things and my past actions are lessons learned. Today, I have the 12 Steps as my solutions, and now I can do things differently. By accepting the existence of my God, fully and completely, I hope to have peace of mind. That's what I truly desire.
2013 has brought me magnificent changes in my body, mind and spirit. I've continued to work the Steps in Alcoholics Anonymous and now Al-Anon as well. I surf and write and play and work... and I have fallen deeply in love in a way that I did not think was possible.
