Happy Mother's Day to all you "Wonderful Moms"!! It has never been, and never will be, easy work! But the road that is built in hope is more pleasant to the traveler than the road built in despair, even though they both lead to the same destination. Think for a moment about a city nearby. Now picture the many roads that lead to that city. One may be a winding road. One may be an expressway. No matter which one is taken, it will still reach the same destination. But what will matter is how pleasant the journey is along the way. Before we entered the program, we probably traveled on the road marked despair. We didn't know there were other roads for our journey. But the program has taught us there are many roads to recovery through God: strength, hope, peace, happiness, caring and most of all love.
As long as we keep recovery as our destination, we may choose to travel any road we like. If we've traveled yesterday on the road called despair, we can change our road today to one of hope. As long as God is our destination, we need not worry about losing our way. Which road will I travel today? Where will this road lead me?
