Short Comings

 

No more struggles with booze no more struggles with myself

but AA did not promise me a life free from all conflicts

 

When I got here I had to go thru the same withdrawal as everyone else

 

staying sober Trying to get my family back not knowing

it was never going to happen because of my shortcomings

 

My X-wife had enough of my crap so now I had to find something to live for

and that was for my two kids I had visiting rights that where very good

 

X never tried to keep me from seeing or being with my kids

 

That was my first blessing in the struggle to stay sober

and change my behaviors and shortcomings

 

I started to become the Dad I should have always been

I gained the love and respect of my kids back

 

Also something else the respect of my X wife  bye working thru my past

 

I have made many amends To many people and have gain respect form them

 only because I became more honest and respectable

 

But life still goes on and the steps teach us how to deal with struggles of living life sober

 

Not everything is peaches and cream it’s easy to stay sober when everything is going great

 

But life does thru is a curve ball every now and then that’s where the teachings of the steps

 

And the love of God keeps us together in times of tragedy when the unthinkable happens to us

 

Or to our family members that’s when the real test of our sobriety comes

 

can we overcome tragedy Well if we have practice the principles of recovery

we can and better than normal people do I think

 

Its because of the spiritually that the steps taught us we can get thru these things

 

And still see the light thru the darkness of the moment

 God is always with us thru the struggles of life

 

And we are truly blessed with His unconditional love

His guidance thru all our struggles

 

God bless each of you as He has me
