Phew, talk about going out with a bang! The last 3 months, of my 7 years and 7 months, has rewarded me with just a few of these: more strength than I gave myself credit for, more patient, and how to be silent,it helped me see things a whole lot clearer, which btw, the clear part has been there for a while, I guess it’s more like confirmation of my feelings and doubts that I had , was I making the right choices and decisions for all involved. I proved to myself by their actions that I have made the right choices and decision. It has been extremely difficult, but I pushed through, sober. I’m fortunate now at this point of my journey, that I don’t think of dealing with the issues by having a drink, it’s actually the farthest thing from my mind. Reason being? The whole issue itself is because of alcohol! Ya, I also chose to get out of that circus ring and stop the cycle. Anyhow, we’ve had a few more hiccups in the road that we have been dealing with again, because of alcohol, this time it’s our children. They are grown adults who made bad choices when intoxicated. We will all as a strong family push through, sober.
So, to sum it up, when I look back at 2016, the only really testy, emotional ride was the last 3 months of the year. Could of been at least not so BAM, BAM, BAM! Yes, I am aware things come in 3’s but seriously! All kidding aside, I am grateful for my struggles and accomplishments, I now have the strength and expertise and a wonderful husband to help on advising our children about the affects of alcohol and how it rips family’s and people apart.
I would like to make a toast,
To my husband for being the best man in the world.
To my children, all 4, (we’re a blended family) I thank you and wish you much success and all your dreams fulfilled.
To all close to me and our family, Happy New Years we love you all.
Happy New Year to all of the great bloggers out there!
This is, Being Me Sober
