Today I celebrate seven years of continuous sobriety.
I received a congratulatory email with the following prayer. It says it all.
Dear Higher Power,
Thank you for the strength and conviction to continue with the task you have entrusted to me. Thank you for guiding me through the many obstacles in my path and for keeping me resolute when all seemed hopeless. Thank you for your protection and the many signs along the way. Thank you for any good I may have done along the way. Thank you for the friends I have made, please watch over them as you watched over me. Thank you for allowing me Serenity, giving me Courage and granting me Wisdom. I will go to my rest in peace knowing I fought the good fight, I finished the race, I kept the faith.
