from Counseling On A Shoestring
This is a special time to give thanks for our many blessings.
It is also a good time to remember those who struggle in addictions to alcohol and other drugs, as well as the loved ones who hurt with them.
Because Counseling On A Shoestring is all about encouragement and support, I am thankful for being able to share prayers from the 12-Steps.
Many people are not aware of the fact that there are prayers directly related to the 12-steps:

In closing, I want to share the wisdom of one of the AA founders, Dr. Bob:
According to Ed, Dr. Bob would explain prayer by telling how the camels in a caravan would kneel down in the evening, and the men would unload their burdens. In the morning, they would kneel down again, and the men would put the burdens back on. “It’s the same with prayer,” Dr. Bob said. “We get on our knees to unload at night. And in the morning when we get on our knees again, God gives us just the load we are able to carry for that day.” c. 1980, Dr. Bob and the Good Oldtimers, page 229
THIS WEEK’s RECOVERY QUOTE:
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more.
If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”.
