Thank you so much sweet friend!
Before I found recovery I used to dread my birthday. At some point, there were usually tears along
with the expected dose of disappointment. I remember my first bday in recovery, I reached out on this forum
and received some amazing support and ES&H. As I've grown in recovery and into a stronger, "new and improved" (ha,ha!)
version of myself...well, my birthday is amazing to me. It was the day I came into the world and began my journey
Earth-side. I told my daughter tonight how grateful I am to have had these years and to see another birthday. I don't take a single
moment for granted and I appreciate my life and everything and everyone in it.

Today, was a blessed day for me. Sunshine, warm temperatures. Students who sang to me in almost every class, lots of bday wishes,
Indian food, time in a favorite comic-book shop, and a delicious pink donut with custard filling.

Yes, I've chosen to focus on the good in my life and leave all the rest behind me today!

Thanks again, Marianne! xoxo
