A.A. is a joyful program! Even so, I occasionally balk at
taking the necessary steps to move ahead, and find myself
resisting the very actions that could bring about the joy
I want. I would not resist if those actions did not touch
some vulnerable area of my life, an area that needs hope and
fulfillment. Repeated exposure to joyfulness has away of softening
the hard, outer edges of my ego. Therein lies the power of
joyfulness to help all members of A.A.
