Inexpensive Message

I’ve found it useful to think about the groups of people I associate with and consider what I’ve done lately to be of service to them. Family, religious groups, Twelve Step groups, neighbors, friends, and volunteer site workers are some of the categories of people in this inventory.

A recent look at my activities showed that I wasn’t doing much for Overeaters Anonymous beyond showing up for meetings and throwing $5 in the basket. So, I ordered sixty About OA flyers from the OA bookstore and took thirty to my cardiologist’s office. The doctor there had previously said to me that my weight was right on target, so I told my doctor this is why.

The other thirty flyers went to the weight control office of our local hospital, which holds a nine-month class in weight management. Overeaters Anonymous can offer those class participants support during and after the class.

Inexpensive handouts with a phone number written on them can bring hope and peace for so many! Service is gratitude in action.
