I am definitely waking up a grateful girl. My husband had flowers, candy and balloons waiting for me when I walked into the kitchen. It is my 8th year of being sober.
Without God I would not be alive. This much I know. Without helping others and with the help of others I wouldn’t be sober, this much I know too.
This last year has been the most life altering of them all since I woke up that day on a bed withdrawing and sweatin and oh so grateful. So ok, that first year would be the most significant then this past year 🙂
We sang for the troops in IRAQ/KUWAIT, (LOVE OUR TROOPS!) I met my husband, I got married, I went to ITALY, I got pregnant and now about to give birth!!!! What a year!!!!
I wish I knew why some people get it and some don’t. I have someone very close to me who can NOT get it and it breaks my heart. I pray for her everyday. I am heartsick wondering what else has to happen to snap her out of it. I know there is nothing really I can do. I have seen what enabling will do, I have seen what hate will do. So ya get stuck in the middle, detaching with love and trying to still figure out how you can help….Sometimes you just can’t. SO on this birthday if I can ask for prayers for her. I would love it. Maybe if I can get enough prayers going up she will snap out of it, I don’t know, only HE knows her fate. I sure love her.
I love you too 🙂
