Word of the Day

Gratitude was not part of my vocabulary until I walked into an OA meeting. At times, I may have experienced gratitude or been aware of it, but I never verbalized it. Since coming to OA, I am aware of my gratitude on so many levels. First, I’m grateful that such an organization exists and is available to me wherever I am. Second, I’m grateful that members have taken the time to write our literature and that people come to meetings and make phone calls. Third, I’m grateful for the understanding and new friends I have found because of OA meetings. Finally, I’m particularly grateful for my sponsor—someone willing to give her time, support, and advice so that I may make my life better. I am filled with gratitude.
