That one special person

A sponsor is not necessarily a friend, but may be someone in whom we confide. We can share things with our sponsor that we might
not be comfortable sharing in a meeting.

IP No. 11, Sponsorship, Revised


Weve asked someone to sponsor us, and the reasons we have for asking that particular person are as many as the grains of sand on a beach.  Perhaps we heard them share at a speaker meeting and thought they were funny or inspiring.  Perhaps we thought they had a great car and we would get one by working the same program they work.  Or maybe we live in a small town and they were the only person who had the time available to help.

Whatever our initial reasons for getting the sponsor we have, were sure to find that our reasons for keeping them are quite different.  Suddenly theyll amaze us with some stunning insight, making us wonder whether theyve been sneaking peeks at our Fourth Step.  Or maybe were going through some sort of life crisis, and their experience with the same problem helps us in ways we never dreamed possible.  We call them in pain, and they come up with a special combination of caring words that provide genuine comfort.

None of these remarkable feats on the part of our sponsor are mere coincidence.  Theyve simply walked the same path before us.  A Higher Power has placed that one special person in our lives, and we are grateful for their presence.


Just for today:  I will appreciate that one special person in my lifemy sponsor.


Living looking in surplus by

  • Legal drugs not resolving issues
  • Suits made and maintained by sacrificing beings (sheepskin, unfairly paid labor - dirty backend)
  • Wax in hair rather than like healthy diet

= burdens not a problem?
