Today is my birthday


It is not a celebration of the day I was born, it is a celebration of the day I woke up....

Literally.

I have 17 years clean and sober today.


Go me.

I thought you had that recovery humor going! That certainly quality people get when they have hit the bottom and found a way out. Something tough as nails and yet tender and real all at once. Big congratulations on your 17th birthday! No small feat eh?

Congratulations...and thank you! :-)

Thank you for waking up and joining us. Thank you for inspiring and challenging all of those little turkeys in your classes on a daily basis, some of whom will go on to change our world in ways we could never have imagined. And... thank you for being an inspiration to me - helping me clear away some of the fog in order to "see" that I CAN change and make a life for myself that is completely different than the one I've ever known.
