A sunset in New Canada, Maine. Way up near the northern border, potato farms a couple of small lakes, very nice place.
Things are going well, my wife is having exercises for the upper body now, the legs not too much yet. She's comfortable and being well cared for.
We started working our recovery program for one reason—to stop our disease from controlling our life. Once we recover our ability to live in a sane way, a funny thing happens—we discover that we’re learning so much.
First we learn we have a disease that we can recover from. Then we learn about ourselves—our strengths and weaknesses, and our values. Next we learn how to live better. Then we learn how to have healthy relationships. Finally we have a spiritual awakening.
These are huge changes. We learn things in recovery that we will use in all areas of our life. We now have the skills and courage to follow the lead of our Higher Power into new adventures as we develop our relationships and our talents, and find a way to make a difference in our own corner of the world.
