a new Freedom




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the freedoms I possess when I abstain from alcohol

that I never have to cry in my beer (again)

that a few people are willing to share personal experiences with me

for an almost uncanny ability to let it go

that Melody J. celebrated 4 years of sobriety yesterday

that I tested my new Jacuzzi and it works just fine; we hope to close on the house later this week

Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
