I've Come A Long Way, Baby

Today at my support group we celebrated 2 birthdays: my 1st year of sobriety and another woman's 2nd year. I got a balloon that said *Happy 1st Birthday.* LOL I feel so lucky to have found this group of women to hang out with every Saturday morning. They have been supportive beyond words. I am 80% positive that without this group I would not be here writing this today. I try to not think about where I would or wouldn't be had I not stumbled upon them the morning of April 16th.
I am thankful for Justin's support even though at times I know he doesn't understand me, because he is not me, though I am sure he likes the me today better than the me last year.
I am thankful for my kids- they keep me going every day. Without them, I think my journey might have been harder. I have learned how to embrace most moments of every day...something that was truly foreign to me in the past. I have more growing to do and I am honestly looking forward to it.

Well- I've gotta clean the house now. Justin is on a bike ride and Jill & Curt are coming down...they were supposed to come down last Saturday, but they had the flu. I hope they don't mind a half-ass clean house.

OK looks like I made it. I really have used google before but lost my password. Now it's found. I am also so proud of you, Amy. With a support group you will find the best friends!!! Also the search for "Who I am?" gets easier with support.
