WEll, tomorrow is 15 years of sobriety. It is funny things that go thru your head, close to your sobriety date.I re-remember all the horrors of that time in my life, and am SO GRATEFUL that I am not that person anymore. And just last Sunday, as we sat down at the little diner we have breakfast at , every Sunday, and the waitress asked for our order, I said, well, I would get a double bloody Mary if you had one.I was very pissed at the time. I would not have really, I was just seething at the time. BUT alcholism can sneek up on you, even after many years, so one can never truly let their guard down. Today I am truly blessed, getting opportunities I have never had before. And I can see today, that the Divine[Higher Power, whatever you call that Being greater than us] loves me and has forgiven me, and that is the biggest gift of all.I can never forget that, bc if the Divine can love me, and forgive me, I can.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
