Thank You!

It was one year ago today that Trudging found my blog and put a link on her blog and I was embraced into this wonderful sober blogging community. I remember looking at my blog that day and seeing there were more than a couple of comments and I couldn't believe it! I had started this blog in September '05 and didn't see much point in continuing it, until you so graciously allowed me into your community. This blog has really been a life-saver for me. It has hooked me into another sober community, it has forced me to re-examine my thoughts about being a person with long-term sobriety, and it has gotten my nose back into our beloved AA literature.

I thank you all for taking the risk to share your lives on your blogs. And I thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I consider it an honor.

"In any meeting, anywhere, A.A.'s share experience, strength, and hope with each other, in order to stay sober and help other alcoholics. Modem-to-modem or face-to-face, A.A.'s speak the language of the heart in all its power and simplicity." Alcoholics Anonymous, Forward to the Fourth Edition, p. xxiv

I remember the day well. I am glad Trudge found you as well. Fringe netizens on recovery. A very small subset of the recovery world we are.

This post made me smile, MC. Cause I remember the feeling, too. April found me and then JJ started coming, too, and then all of a sudden I was in this wonderful world of recovery blogging.
I can't even begin to tell you how much you add to my recovery, MC. You are amazing and I'm glad you kept writing until we could ALL "meet."
Peace,
Scout
