Feb. 23, 2024 - Readings in Recovery: Today's Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation


Friday, Feb. 23, 2024

Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Life didn’t promise to be wonderful.

— Teddy Pendergrass

Life doesn’t promise us anything, except a chance. We have a chance to live any way we like. No matter how we choose to live, we’ll have pain and we’ll have joy. And we can learn from both.

Because of our recovery program, we can have life’s biggest wonder — love. We share it in a smile, a touch, a phone call, or a note. We share it with our friends, our partners, our family. Life didn’t promise to be wonderful, but it sure is full of little wonders! And we only have to open up and see them, feel them, and let them happen.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, help me see the wonders of life todayin nature, in people’s faces, in my own heart.

Action for the Day

I can help make wonderful things happen for others, with a smile, a greeting, a helping hand. What “little” things will I do for someone today?
