With Gratitude for you on Thanksgiving and an Annual Gift from Us to You
Dear BALM Community,
We are Grateful to You!
On behalf of everyone here in the BALM organization, I’m writing this letter to tell you all how grateful we are to you for bringing us into your home, into your online world, and into your lives.
Whether you’ve been simply reading our blogs, or watching us on YouTube, or coming to our free events, or you are a member of one of our family or professional communities, knowing that what we say and do is having a positive impact on your life and hopefully that of your family members means more to us than we could ever say. At times like these when we are called upon to count our blessings, we count you among our greatest blessings. You give us a reason to do what we do, and your generosity of spirit keeps us going.
You Are The BALM Community!
The BALM is a community because of all of you. We come from many backgrounds with many different beliefs and ideas and none of that matters because together, we are forging recovery for ourselves and our families, and those who have come through what we are going through or have been through understand that the unconditional love and peace that we strive to practice each day transcends any differences that society may assign us.
So again, thank you for being in our lives and in the lives of all of our BALMers. Thank you for being there for us in our times of sadness and great joy, and thank you for letting us into your lives. May your sorrows decrease and your joys grow ever stronger as you expand your practice of the BALM and all that it teaches to all of us.
Our Gift To You
I am not sure if you heard about the special Free Holiday Support Calls we have going on between now and the end of 2021. There are two sets of calls each week through the end of December.
On Tuesdays at 10:00 am ET and on Thursdays at 9:00 pm ET, the calls are available for persons in active use disorder or recovery. These calls are an opportunity to be in community with others who have or had a struggle with a use disorder.
On Wednesdays at 11:00 am ET and on Fridays at 1:00 pm ET, the calls are designed for families coping with the impact of a loved one’s challenges.
Either way, if you could use support or would like to lend support at this time of the year, we hope you will join one of these groups. And feel free to invite any of your friends or family members who could use the support at this time of year!
You can sign up here to get the Zoom link.
With love and thanksgiving,
