Re: I've been thinking.......

So I'm at Wal-mart buying a bag of dog food for my dog. While in the check-out line, a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Why else would I be buying dog food, RIGHT??? So on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Dog food Diet again, and that I probably shouldn't because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in intensive care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and all you do is load your pockets with food Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle's butt and a car hit me.

THE GIFT OF NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS
GOD IN HIS WISDOM SELECTED THIS GROUP OF MEN AND WOMEN TO BE THE PURVEYORS OF HIS GOODNESS. HE WENT NOT UNTO THE PROUD. THE MIGHTY, THE FAMOUS. OR THE BRILLIANT, HE WENT TO THE HUMBLE, THE SICK, THE UNFORTUNATE. HE WENT STRAIGHT TO THE ADDICT, THAT SO-CALLED WEAKLING IN THIS WORLD. WHAT MIGHT HE HAVE SAID TO US?
"Unto your weak and feeble hands I have entrusted a power beyond estimate. To you has been given that which has been denied the most learned of you fellows. Not to scientists or Statesmen, not to wives or mothers, not even to my priests or ministers have I given this gift of healing other addicts which I entrust to you.
It must be used unselfishly for it carries with it grave responsibility, sometimes the difference between life and death. No day can be too long; no demands upon your time can be too urgent; no case too pitiful; no task too hard; no effort too great; It must be used with tolerance for I have restricted its application to no race, no creed, and no denomination. Personal criticism you must expect; lack of appreciation will be common; ridicule will be your lot; your motives will he misjudged. You must be prepared for adversity, for what men call adversity is the ladder you must use to ascend the rungs toward spiritual perfection And, remember, in the exercise of this power I shall not expect of you beyond your capabilities.
You are not selected because of exceptional talents. Be careful always, if success attends your efforts, not to ascribe to personal superiority that to which you lay claim only by virtue of MY gift. If I had wanted learned men there would have been many anxious for the assignment, for talk is the easiest used of all talents with which I have endowed mankind. If I had wanted scholarly men, the world is filled with better qualified men than you, who would be available.
You were selected because you have been the outcasts of the world and your long experience as addicts has made or should make you humbly alert to the cries of distress that come from the lonely hearts of addicts everywhere.
Keep ever in mind the admission you made on the day of your profession in NA - that your were powerless and that it was only with your willingness to turn your life and will unto My keeping that relief came to you."
