Today is a Good Day for a Good Day

After Mr. Rosenberg left for work this morning and Bob headed out the door for the walk to school, I sat in the chair in the living room and had a big cry. It's my sober anniversary. I stopped drinking thirty years ago today and the idea that I could have so easily missed all of this, my dear life, is overwhelming. 

Sobriety, just like life, is a fragile thing. There are no guarantees. All we've got is today. And today, is excellent. I am eternally grateful to the grace I have been afforded and all of those who have given me hope and help and a path to follow.

I'm getting teary again. You guys. My gratitude takes my breath away. Thanks for being here with me.


  1. I love you so much my Lisa! Thank God for you. Every day. Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy birthday!
    I am celebrating one more day, too.

  3. I'm so happy for you, your lovely family, and your wonderful life. Proud to be your friend, my dear!

  4. This Christmas will be my 30 yrs sober "birthday". I love how you frame this. I have not felt deprived, only blessed by the clarity.~Cindy Mann

  5. Congrats on attaining such a significant Anniversary, there is no wonder it is an emotional one, so much can be and is missed when sobriety cannot be attained.
