5 Years thanks to this Fellowship, the Programme (12 Steps) and my Higher Power I call God

Hello friends,

I celebrated 5 years today. Not sure of the exact date but I know it was January 1x, 2009.

I chose today because it was my local NA meeting tonight and I picked up a medal there. I was not the only 5 year birthdays there, imagine that!

Thanks to everyone here at Olgan-anon. My sponsor(s), the 12 Step Programme, my sponsees, and of course my Higher Power whom today I know to be Jesus Christ my Saviour.

Blessings

Congratulations and a huge thank you, Pete. So glad you're here sharing real life and helping others do the same.

Acceptance. When I am disturbed, it is because a person, place, thing, or situation is unacceptable to me. I find no serenity until I accept my life as being exactly the way it is meant to be. Nothing happens in God’s world by mistake.  Acknowledge the problem, but live the solution!
