I'm so grateful I'm sober.

My surgery is today. It's a radical hysterectomy with hopes that there is no cancer.

I'm shamelessly reaching out to the prayer warriors, positive energy senders and lovers of all things spiritually nourishing. I need you now more then ever. And God knows, I've needed you a lot.

Today is the culimination of the last six months of sober work. I finally get to be rid of what started me down this path to begin with. So it's bittersweet in a sense. I feel gratitude for my ill health because it got me sober.

Imagine that.

I so very much look forward to what the rest of my days bring. My intentions include good health, lots of love, spiritual connections and faith .

Today I'm grateful to be an alcoholic. Because without it , I wouldn't have been given you...and you all are my gift.

With so much love and light...

XO AO

alphaomega - you have made me cry. I will start praying today and offer up to God all that I do today in your name.

I wish that it wasn't alcoholism that brought all of us together but I am glad that we all found this melting pot of sobriety.

Hope to hear healthy news from you soon.

AO, there is a slideshow which speaks to the journey we take in life and the people who take that journey with us. It compares our life's journeynto a train ride. I am incapable of linking sites with this device but if you go to pixiesplace.com and open the link for The Train Ride you will find it. One of the train compartments contains all of us here at SR.

Pixiesplace.com ----- The Train Ride.
