Rusty, thank you! That's a lot of marbles, I'm sure I'll never lose the last one.

This has been quite the weekend. Fri. night I got to share a quick 5 minute testimony at my Celebrate Recovery groups 8th anniversary celebration. Yesterday my wife & kids presented me with an enameled 5yr chip, a new meditation book, and breakfast in bed. We attended morning and afternoon church services, then I went to my homegroup's speaker meeting and picked up my bronze medallion.

But the best part.......

Is coming here every day and visiting with all of you to share our experience, strength, & hope. What a relief to have this place.

Bless you all

I agree - what a relief to have this place to come to. I always enjoy what you have to say, Astro. Your attitude is wonderful, and ever since I came here you've helped me, whether I've said it often or not. Thank you for all you bring to SR - and well done on the 5 years!

Congratulations Astro! What an awesome achievement ~

Your posts were, and continue to be, such an inspiration since I stumbled onto SR quite by accident.

I'm sure it was by divine intervention and am so grateful to have been guided here to awesome people like you.

Thank you and Happy 5th! Hope your celebratory cake was sober-sized!
