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.
