Joy & Happiness!

"Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are".
Marianne Williamson.
I LOVED this quote. I chuckled when I read it for the first time. It is that friendly reminder I need - telling me that what I choose to focus on is directly releated to how grateful I feel and how much I live in the now. I have the tools, thanks to W.A. to help me make the change. :)

Only 1 phone number needed for W.A. phone meetings 

In the last two weeks, the W.A. Sunday and Thursday night telephone meeting groups voted to start using the same telephone number and access code as the one used by the Saturday and Wednesday groups. Now everyone can program, remember, or write down only one number and there will be fewer double dialers and mistaken calls.

W.A. needs more women sponsors!

We currently only have two women worldwide who are on the W.A. list saying that they are willing to sponsor other workaholic women.  Sponsoring someone in the program is a GREAT boost to your own spiritual program! W.A. needs women members to step forward to sponsor other W.A. women! Please contact us if you are willing and have the time to carry the message this way.
