The Keys of the Kingdom
There is no more aloneness, with that awful ache,
so deep in the heart of every alcoholic that nothing, before, could ever reach it.
That ache is gone and never need return again.
Now there is a sense of belonging, of being wanted and needed and loved.
In return for a bottle and a hangover, we have been given the Keys of the Kingdom.
– Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 276
Thought to Ponder . . .
The sense of belonging is tremendously exciting.

Y A N A = You Are Not Alone.
