Four years and counting.

Yesterday,  8-23-2014, was my four year re-birthday into this sober world without drugs and alcohol. I posted this on Facebook:


I posted this on Instagram:


And I posted this on Twitter:


And we went to our camper as a family. I thought it would be awesome and fun. I haven't had all of the kids there at once this summer.

Look at them swimming in Lake Superior, on a windy 63 degree day.  The only people in the water, but they had fun.  No arguing there.


Here three of them are sitting around the fire.  I think we were talking about how soon we were going to leave the next day.  Some of my kids asked this question, every five minutes.


I don't need a parade to celebrate my sobriety birthdays.  Although I'll post it on every social media site  I can think of, which is pretty much the same thing as asking for a parade.

My life in recovery is so much better than my life using drugs.  I can enjoy my friendships (when I can see my friends again). I can enjoy hanging with my kids, (even if some of them can't wait to get away.)  I can enjoy my new life, work, and path.  I am so proud and grateful to be where I am at.  It is more than I ever imagined I would get out of this life.  Thanks Y'all!

  1. Congrats you!! Thats amazing! How time goes by fast doesn't it. We have accomplished so much in such a little amount of time. I think we have surpassed everyone's expectations of us. I just celebrated 6 years since deciding to get sober. I wrote about that here :) http://lifesexperiencesandinspiringmoments.blogspot.ca/2014/08/its-been-6-years-since-i-decided-to.html?m=1
