This morning I’m doing some reflecting, contemplating the distance that I have traveled during the past twelve months. I will not be speaking on the details, they would only cast a shadow upon my day. Besides, it is not the dark and tragic details of the struggle, but immerging into the light that is important.

My list of Thankful is incredibly long and would require hours of typing, so I’m keeping it short.

My sobriety.
My two beautiful children.
My beautiful granddaughter.
My family.
My friends.
My freedom.
My health.
My home.
My job.
My blog followers.
The blogs I follow.

I can’t say this enough, and I must say it here. For anyone who takes the time to read the words that I have written, Thank You So Very Much! It’s such a wonderful and powerful experience, knowing that someone has chosen to read something that I have written.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
