Grateful to All You
Have you ever heard the saying, "show me who your friends are, and I'll tell what you are", I heard that a long time ago when I first tried to get clean and sober.
Ten years later I finally understood what that meant, stepping out of jail for what I hope was my last time ever. Three months after that I was lucky enough to get back into a rehab program (again).
After work tonight I went to a meeting of Narcotics Anonymous and afterwards some of us went out to dinner, a bunch of addicts just talking about life, work, and family, just like regular people do.
I look up to these men just like I do to the ambassadors here at WA and everyone that has helped me along the way.
I bring that quote up tonight because we talk about what we are doing to make our lifes better and our family's. A couple of the people know about my site and asked how it was coming along.
I explained to them with my mom (cancer), work, school, my recovery, it's not going as planned but I still find time for it. Some got curious as they looked at it on their phones and asked how I did it.
I talked about this new family here at WA and explained the process of how everything works and how I continue to learn and make the site better.
One of the men mentioned that quote tonight about all of you here at WA and stated, "keep it up, keep listening and growing and things will start to happen sounds like a good community to have your back."
I think what Kyle, Carson, Jay, Zed, Israel, Debs, and so many others Michael aka Lesabre, nurseBecca, bigrog, louise, elizabeth, pastor D, marion, and just so freaking many more it gives me inspiration to keep trying and for that I'm thankful. Hell even the newcomers cheer me the hell up.
