Sara is grateful for her recovery

Today I have 4.5 years drug and alcohol free.
I want to share how grateful I am for the recovery I’ve experienced from the disease of addiction. I still have flaming character defects and shortcomings. I still make poor choices from time to time. & I still have a lot to learn.

I also have a list - way too long to write out - that shows all of the miracles and gifts I’ve received from being a clean recovering addict. If you know me, you know that the miracle of God blessing me with a beautiful, healthy daughter is a true testament to the gifts we receive in recovery.

If the word existed to express the mountains I’ve climbed and the mountains I’ve tumbled down, ass over teakettle, I’d say it. The experience of learning a new way to live is sooooo high in value, it can’t possibly be contained in one word. It’s a combination of incredible highs and heart breaking lows that I’ve learned to be willing to feel.

This “reflection” takes ahold of my heart for so many awesome reasons. This is why I thought it would be cool to show all the other half year anniversaries over these awesome years alongside today’s.

If you’re an addict in early recovery, or just trying to find the courage to admit that you are an addict, please know there is a solution. A solution so great and yet so simple, it’ll blow your mind. Trust me. I used for 23 years. I’ve only been clean 4.5. If I can get and stay clean, so can any addict.

I won’t promote the fellowship that saved my life based on our traditions. However. If you want to know my story, PLEASE, reach out anytime. It’s my pleasure to give away what was so freely given to me.

Grateful AF.

Glory to the grace of God,
Sara
