Thanks to all of you. You've given me a lot to think about and work on. It is very nice to know there are many who care.


"I too am thankful for the support and feedback I have been given here. Thanks will for reminding me to be thankful for the people who spend their time to support me, a random, anonymous person who is seeking recovery."

Just one big happy step family    
"We all care because we aren't just random anonymous people, we are step brothers and sisters bound by pain and mutual desire for recovery. We know a great deal about each, just not names and faces sometimes. I've actually run into a few off-line. Some I have met in meetings first and then we have met again here. One I got to know really well here and then met at a recovery. After he had shared in the meeting I knew who he was, so after the meeting I went up to him and introduced myself as JustJohn and we instantly hugged. Names ad faces are minor details compared to the bond we have here. I'm sure we will have a big family reunion on the other side.

Take care my brothers and sisters,

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
