“10 Years Clean and Sober Today – January 31, 2007”

On January 31, 1997, I was mentally,emotionally,physically, and Spiritually Bankrupt. Some of the choices that I had made in my life took some Twist and Turns in a Negative Way! Then there was a DIVINE Intervention from GOD, who Loved me enough to help stop me in my tracks.

Thank You All, I am Grateful To:

My Mother, who NEVER gave up on me, had recognized my disease, long before I did. She was One of the Most Powerful Influences in My Life (Faith). To my Brother (Sam) for showing me the NA way “Through Attraction, Rather than Promotion. For giving me the understanding of the “Disease of Addiction”, and for being a Living Example!!!To My Best Friend (Syl) who helped to wipe me off the Floor (so to speak), was there to help me put the pieces back together, because “I Trusted No One!!” Thanks Laura and Kelley for being there “Always” and keeping My Secrets Safe, especially for the “Vegas” trips (Laura).

My children for Loving Me unconditionally, and for Forgiving Me. (O:K, Mikie, so it took a while for YOU!) To my Andrew (R.I.P.) who supporetd me in my fellowship. Andrew and Mikie, would say “O:K, Mom, I think you need to go to a meeting (NA). They would make it Loud and Clear tha I was out Character, Again!! Aaron and Lynette, my lil heroes, for being patient and enduring “My Bullshit” My children are all incredible, strong,and perservering influences in My Life!! Mikie, I can't even imagine, how this has all been for You (Mijo). I know You are strong!
