HOPE FOR TODAY'S page, March 18

Many of the amends I need to make center around letting go of the past. It's time to give myself and others a second chance.

In Al-Anon, I learned to take care of myself even around people with whom I have a long and painful history.

If disagreement occurs, I can use my program to help me make decisions I won't regret.

I know I can ask my Higher Power for help with this letting go process.

Today I choose to be gentle with myself and to love unconditionlly while detaching with the past.

Enough said, just for today. I cannot add to the quotes above from today's page in Al-Anon's daily reader, HOPE FOR TODAY, written by and for adult children of alcoholics.

Thanks for the reminder that we need to forgive ourselves our pasts and build upon the lessons and good things in them, however we got there. Have a good weekend!

I just *happened* to pick up my Hope for Today on Thursday and read the very same thing and got the very same feelings as you. Funny how that works :-D
