On This Christmas Day




On the way home from the 6:30 meeting this morning, I stopped at a small local park, parked my car and walked around.  I thanked God from the bottom of my heart for too many blessings to count here.  And I had to thank him for the beautiful, sunshiney, 13ºF Colorado Christmas morning.

I wish I had better skills or camera so that I could have captured the sparkling snow and ice covered trees shining in the sun.  But use your imagination - it was amazing.

I hope that Christmas is easy on everyone who finds themselves reading this.

And if not easy, I hope it is satisfying in some small way - if only to know that you are staying sober no matter what.  And if not sober, please be on your way to a bottom that will be truly YOUR bottom so that you will never want to drink again.

God works these miracles in the lives of alcoholics every single day.  You wouldn't think he'd have time for anything else, but he does.

Merry Christmas everyone.

I had a wonderful Christmas with my daughter and my sober son. I can't ask for more than that. I have so much to be thankful for and I try to live my life with gratitude of what I am blessed with. Merry Christmas.

I just found your blog after some google search, I don't even remember what I was looking up. But after reading several pages of your blog, I was inspired to start one of my own to document my sobriety. Thank you for your posts and your pictures; reading your blog made an already wonderful Christmas even better.
