(#2358) Geraldine D (Little Hills, NJ)
10/13-16/1983 in Jekyll Island, GA  EVENT: 30th Georgia State Convention  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

A very close friend to Bill and Lois W, Geraldine ran a treatment center in New Jersey that helped many find there way to recovery.

A tuff bird, she was fond of bacronyms defined as:

an acronym deliberately formed from a phrase whose initial letters spell out a particular word or words, either to create a memorable name or as a fanciful explanation of a word's origin.

For "Thank You Lord" she came up with:

T = The Time you have allowed me to be in AA and help others.

H= The warm Hearts that have extended their hand to help me along the way,

A= The God given Ability to be a good example.

N= New way of life that has made me a lady in my own eyes.

K= Knowledge of alcoholism she has gotten along the way from so many brilliant people

Y= Yesterdays in her life that created the pain that taught her lessons

O= Objectivity in looking at herself

U= Universal Understanding that she has found throughout the world

L= Love and Understanding whether you approve or not

O= Opportunity to Own my own life

R= Results of victory we can all savor if we wish

D= Daily opportunity to learn
