We are grateful that we were made so welcome at meetings that we felt comfortable.
Basic Text, p. 83
Just for today: I remember the welcome I was given when I first came to NA. Today, I will express my gratitude by offering a hug to a newcomer.

Hello and God Bless You.

I am grateful that I was welcomed at my first meeting and welcomed back after my relapses. I know  for a fact that if I wasn’t I would not have stayed. I was already doubtful about going and thinking negatively about NA and wasn’t sure about anything. So I came in expecting the worse and was totally shocked at how I was treated. I sat there and heard people talk about their struggles and hurt and pain and people clapped. I was like WTF. Lol. But I have to admit that I am grateful to have been welcomed so warmly and I will never forget that. I love NA and will do anything I can to help the newcomer feel the same way I felt when I came through the doors. WELCOMED

Today I have to admit that lately I have been feeling a little in a funk. I think I am spending way too much time on Facebook and not enough time on my recovery. Even though I am on FB in recovery groups I am consumed by it and I feel like I am slipping. I have to find that balance needed because I love all the groups I am in an want to continue to participate with all the wonderful new friends I have made. I pray to God for the strength to continue to do his will and not mines. As I continue to grow day by day I am getting to know myself better and can spot the signs a little more clearer. I think I might have to fall back from some of the groups that I am in for a little while just to focus more on me and my recovery. I will monitor my feelings and thoughts more carefully in the up coming days and pray on it before I make my final decision.  I love my groups and everyone in them but ultimately I am responsible for my own recovery there for I have to put myself first.

Thank you for reading today’s blog.

    MAY GOD BLESS your willingness to recognize your feelings of late and keep you in sobriety as HE meets your every need and continues to reveal HIS will to you and provides HIS power to carry it out<3
    Your honesty is such a blessing!
    You have been one of the people I have really
    felt closest to in our groups.
    I so appreciate your blog as it always offers to me an outlook that is helpful and encouraging. I hope you continue with it.
    Hope the NY Giants win all the way TODAY!
    I will be at home alone with the pets watching and online cheering with my friends. My husband and son are going to a clean and sober SB party.
    Thanks so much my FRIEND!!!
    Love and Prayers
