Color my world with hope

Have I ever mentioned on this blog that I've found much hope in life through the 12 Steps?

Someone shared that their recovery program "colored her world with hope". That little sentence has been bouncing around in my head ever since. And, to go with that, there's the Chicago song (I know, I'm showing my age!) "Colour my World".

I've heard it said that addictions of all kinds are a way of shutting out the pain of life. I'm so grateful that I've been enabled to face the pain, learn what I did to cause it, and learn a new way to live my life.

Faith has always been a part of my life, and for that I'm so grateful. The 12 Steps have shown me how to put that faith into action. What a difference!
