Thanks to all of you!! Especially happy for you, Mango. It started out as just being one 24 hours without drinking, was allowed to shiver and moan a lot...just no booze, then things started getting better....and it hasn't stopped getting better. Although I had made a 'good living' (wages wise), they told me I needed to go back to school....because now my job was to help folks....and I was very ignorant of how to do that. So I did....for ten years....worked full time in the field of recovery and went to San Diego State full time.... got a master degree...and have continued to 'help others'. There is no measure for the gladness in my life today. I just came back from the E R where I was asked to help do an intervention for a lady with 2 kids. She had attempted suicide because of alcoholism. She is okay TODAY and was smiling and hugging her kids and her Dad (my neighbor) when I saw them last. Such is my lot today....and no one has a heart so full as do I. And below is what I got to accomplish today!!
