“I put my hand in yours…”
With Thanksgiving approaching I am already pondering the strategies and tools I intend to use and/or apply to keep my focus on the reason for the holiday and not the food around this holiday. As anxiety about the day envelops me, I can remind myself that it is weakness, not strength, that binds me to my fellow OAers and it is my intention to wallow in that weakness! Our very wise founder has provided for me powerful words to keep accessible on Thanksgiving Day. (I also intend to have my cell phone accessible too!)
“I put my hand in yours and together we can do what we could never do alone!
No longer is there a sense of hopelessness,
no longer must we each depend upon our own unsteady willpower.
We are all together now, reaching out our hands for power and strength greater than ours,
and as we join hands, we find love and understanding
beyond our wildest dreams.”
– Rosanne’s Promise
Have a joyous, serene, and satisfying abstinent Thanksgiving!
