COURAGE MONTH: DAY 21: “We must become bigger than we have been more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.”― Haile Selassie I
This is what we have in recovery. This is what happens in the fellowship…our ultimate allegiance to our fellows in the human community. We serve them and love them and guide them and rely upon them for guidance when we need it as well.
The fellowship we get to experience is without comparison in the world. The things we go through with one another are beautiful because the burdens and the joys are shared so well.
I have been met with amazing courage and love in times that were tough. I have watched what we do as I see others rally to aid others in need. Not just recovering members, but the community at large.
I see this stuff, and God, through the way we get to show up and be with each other and help each other and love each other through life, one day at a time, every day.
Not everyone gets to benefit from this camaraderie, but I sure do, and I sure am grateful.
