Faith!


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.

That's wonderful Molly! Now a word of caution to you both...remember to keep it in today..yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a present. So the stuff like home, family, your future..important and joyful stuff to be sure....are not as important as what happens right now. But I am sure you know that...and I know what that pink cloud feels like because I'm still on it too and my plan is not to get off:)

Your husband is very lucky to have you as a part of his journey. That is what I miss...I'd love for my husband to share this experience with me but he is not interested. Happy he has a sober wife to be sure...but not interested in changing his....YET.
