Time Takes Time

One Saturday afternoon I sat in a workshop held by one of our former nonsexaholic  trustees and his wife.  The topic was "The Family Afterward" from the AA Big Book chapter of the same name.  One thing I remember is the statement "time takes time."  When it comes to healing and making amends in a relationship I have found this to be a useful slogan.  I heard a physician  who is an SA member say that "time itself can be a healing agent."  That too has been my experience.
