Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Today I am grateful to be alive. It is a beautiful day to be alive and sober. Every morning I need to remind myself of how truly blessed I am. There are so many people that are worse off than I am. I am always wanting something better, a newer car, a bigger house. But I need to be thankful for what I do have. Some people don't even have that. I do work hard for what I have, and I know it isn't a lot, but it is mine. And I am thankful for it. And I don't just mean I, I mean we, Chris and I. Being thankful is hard sometimes though. Jeff Dixon said, "Sometimes we focus so much on what we don't have, that we fail to see, appreciate, and use what we do have." A lot of us have a lot more than we think we do. If we would just take a second to really think about it. We would realize we really do. So thank you God for all you have given me and continue to bless me with. That's all I got for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
