Ramblings on living and loving a man with a brain disease called alcoholism.
Wednesday, December 10, 2008
My beloved has 84 days of sobriety. My gratitude is overwhelming. He is the man I have always loved and knew to be, except now he is not hidden by the disease. Slowly, without realizing it, I have gotten comfortable and content with our new life, new pattern, new habits. Our future feels secure and bright like never before and I could not be more pleased. A thousand thank you's a day couldn't express my gratitude to my higher power. And I cannot help but be optimistic about our future. We're finally talking about the possibilities ahead, like buying a home, having a baby, and getting remarried (not necessarily in that order!). I am overjoyed and amazed. I know we will face hard times ahead; it is inevitable. But I've found prayer and a higher power and I've seen what we can work through. Miracle of miracles, I have faith.
