I asked a sponsee to go to a couple of meetings a week since he hasn't been to one in over two weeks. His reply was that he didn't want to become dependent on Al-anon. His intuition told him that he needed to take care of himself and rest and not drive 20 minutes to get to a meeting. I asked if his intuition had ever been off. He said that it was always right.
There are many ways to vary how this program works. I have done that myself but without progress toward recovery. I realize that I can't tell another how to work the program. I can say what works for me. Next week I start work with two more new sponsees. That is something that I enjoy. I so like when light dawns in their eyes.
I wish that all could see that life is filled with twists and turns but there can be so much joy. My path is much smoother because of this program. I am most grateful for having a great sponsor who is willing to remind me of what the program teaches. He is willing to let me work through what I must. Eventually I get back on track. I am thankful for being willing to do that. That is God's grace in my life.
I am hoping that you are having a good Sunday.
