  • Today is my AA birthday!!!!!!!

    Today I am celebrating 15 years of sobriety [img]biggrin.gif[/img] Doesn't seem possible.....15 years ago I was soooooooooo close to death and I never believed for a second that I could do it.
    But, because of ALOT of AA meetings for 7 years and then the I support I've gotten here for the last 3 years, I haven't had to pick up a drink and I am geeked [img]wink.gif[/img]

        Somewhere there's a reason /Why things go like they do /Somewhere there's a reason /Why some things just fall through /We don't always see them /For what they really are /But I know there's a reason /Just can't see it from this far /Maybe I don't like it, /But I have no choice /I know that somewhere, /Someone hears my voice / I thought I knew it all /I thought I had it made /How could it end this way? /I thought I knew Somewhere there's a reason /Why things don't go my way /Somewhere there's a reason /That I cannot explain /Just like the change of season, /Just may not be my turn /But I know there's a reason, /The lesson's mine to learn

          I did something VERY special.....my kids still don't remember the date and that doesn't matter anymore. Infact, I don't think about it that often, but I spent the evening with my husband, my son and his VERY VERY pregnant wife and it was GREAT [img]biggrin.gif[/img]

            Happy birthday!!! This is an important one for you. That other birthday you have every year is not one you chose --- this is the one you selected --- and every year is a new celebration of the difficult path you walked to get where you are.

            Warm birthday hugs,
            Donna
            Stay safe

              Congratulations Teri,
              One day at a time, the days turn into weeks, and the weeks turn into years, and we have a whole new life! The first word of the first step is WE - and we don't have to be alone anymore.

                      This is a verrrrrry old post from '02...........if Teri gets the chance to pop on here I'm sure she will be thrilled that IC'ers are still celebrating her big day.
