I was never known for my patience. How many times have I asked,"
Why should I wait, when I can have it all right now?" Indeed,
when I was first presented the Twelve Steps, I was like the
proverbial "kid in a candy store." I couldn't wait to
get to Step Twelve; it was surely just a few months' work,
or so I thought! I realize now that living the Twelve Steps
of A.A. is a lifelong undertaking.
