I am grateful to have these people in my life today. It wasn't always so.
Alcoholism causes a lot of damage - to a lot of people.
Whenever I hear someone say they are grateful to be an alcoholic I think "you must not have children." I am more grateful than words can say that I am sober. But I am not grateful for the damage I have done to my family. I am not grateful for the genetics that I get to watch play out. It is such a painful thing this alcoholism.
And now I am going to go to bed. I will read for a while and then I will fall asleep while it is just getting dark. I was up at 4 and out running this morning. I worked all day and I am tired. It was a good day. A very good day.
God is so good to me. Good to us.
