After spending the morning dealing with the frustrating details (‘whaddaya mean we don’t have the right envelopes!?”) of getting out a mailing to potential LifeRing donors, it was more than heartening to receive a card in the mail from “The Albuquerque Group” with the message, “Dear LifeRing, Thanks for all you do to provide a viable alternative to 12-step recovery” and an added note saying, “I’m grateful for the support LifeRing gave me as I bumbled along in early sobriety (sober nearly 4 years!)” The card was a wonderful reminder of why we do what we do. It made my mad dash to Staples seem totally worth it!
