It has been said that Recovery is like a big, big river. The meetings,fellowship,step work,prayer,meditation,self searching,helping others ,etc is like a river. You can come to the river with a cup, or you can come to the river with a washtub. If you come with a cup, all you will get is a cup. If you come with a washtub, you will get a washtub full.
We can’t get upset if someone gets a washtub full and all you get is a cup full, because there is enough water for everybody!
