too good to be true?

when things start to go good in recovery …and sobriety isn’t as hard, I think most of us may get that feeling that “it can’t last”:  this joy, this good day or good thing that just happened to  me…it’s a fluke.  but I want to challenge you and me to NOT do that.  it is true and it is good.  it can be this good.  I will remember this day when inevitably the falling downs in life occur, the depressed moods, the whining and complaining about too much responsibility…for today was a good day.

I give my HP all the glory…I sit here tonight in abject awe of my not quite but almost two years without booze. how in the hell did I end up here?  nothing but the grace of a loving, hilarious and miraculous God. 

I’m grateful and humbled and yes, will be daily overwhelmed with my rat race western life…but it’s the life for which I;’m grateful.  the life that I was so intent upon ending through alcoholism but today ..just this moment …a life I am relishing and praising the heavens for my being a part of.  a part of something greater than myself.  a gift. thank you big man upstairs.  master of the universe. creator ,life giver. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
