It's Independence Day (US)

When I was little, I always referred to Independence Day as the "4th of July". I remember wondering, "Do they have the 4th of July in other countries?" Of course they do. It's sandwiched between the 3rd of July and the 5th of July :)

But I'm glad that today is Independence Day for my country. And I'm glad that I can be independent from alcohol today. The once all-mighty king has been dethroned.


Today, I'm grateful for ...

  • being independent from alcohol for 89 days
  • the ability to live the rest of my life independent from alcohol's oppression
  • the sacrifices of the earliest Americans, who gave their lives for the founding ideals of this country
  • my sweet boyfriend, who inspires me
  • my wonderful family and adorable puppy
  • God, who blesses me everyday with everything I need to stay sober
