For many of us, our recovery date is more important than the day we were born. In fact, for most of us – it’s the day we were re-born. Whether you are a member of AA, CA, NA, Ala-non or another anonymous program, you’ve already been given the greatest gift – Recovery!
Commemorate your special date with a calendar product from Not Just Any Old Day…It’s YOUR Special Day®. It’s the perfect gift to yourself, your sponsees or that special someone in your life to acknowledge an incredibly important date in theirs.
On page 276 of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous (fourth edition), last paragraph it reads…….“Now there is a sense of belonging, of being wanted and needed and loved. In return for a bottle and a hangover, we have been given the Keys of the Kingdom”.
At the end of 2007, I sat at my computer and searched the internet for hours hoping to find the perfect gift to celebrate Steve’s (my husband) sobriety date. I was having a hard time finding exactly what I pictured in my mind his gift should look like. I recalled a calendar charm that my Grandfather (who was a jeweler) had made into a necklace and gave to my Grandmother to mark their wedding anniversary. She wore it every day that I can remember, and it was probably the most special treasure in her jewelry collection.
Being as sentimental as I am, I wanted to find a similar piece that was meaningful and unique. Everything I found online was so ordinary or not quite my taste. To solve my dilemma, I designed my own calendar charm, and had the first calendar piece made in sterling silver into a key ring for Steve. I loved it so much, that I had a calendar necklace made for myself with my own birthday marked on it.
