Sober since April 6, 2006


Sunday, May 28, 2006


It's another beautiful day. A bit warm -- but I like it that way.

I'm truly happy today. The past week has been incredible. For the first time in a long time, I'm grateful to be stuck on this third rock from the sun.

AA has many sayings. One of them is often used in reference to hard times: "And this too shall pass." All of the bad feelings and emotions will eventually pass ... but the good ones will pass too :P I'm ready to deal with that now. I wasn't able to handle it before.

Today, I'm grateful for:

  • being 52 days sober
  • being alive
  • being able to handle emotional discomfort
  • a new, wonderful friend
  • my loving family
  • my cute puppy, who thought enough of me this morning to proudly fetch his blanket and show it to me :P
  • AA friends, online and off
  • the patient saints who read my blog
  • the love and mercy of God
