IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Sunday, November 18, 2012



Nine years ago today I woke from a lifetime of slumber to a surrender that only a Higher Power could have given me. Without consciously knowing I had given up my old life...it just happened. I didn't even give it a second thought. It was my psychic change. The previous night I was in a blackout binge that had gone on for five days. Gone were all the old thoughts that were only concerned with alcohol, they had been replaced with peace and serenity. Today I am grateful to continue down this path with all its collected gifts. I am grateful to give back what I have been so freely given. I am grateful to be leading a life, not having a life being led by drink. I have ridden past the hideous Four Horsemen, my former constant companions. I am grateful for an understanding of Who I Am and Why I Am Here.

I remember bumming when you went on hiatus. Thank God you are sober and our paths crossed, if only briefly!
