Good afternoon! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I really like this quote, because it can relate to a lot of things in your life, relationships, family, jobs, etc. And it can all happen for different reasons alcohol, drugs, cheating, etc. We, or at least I did, take for granted for all that we are blessed with. I had a family that loved me, a decent job, a vehicle to get me to that job, a roof over my head, a God that never left me, and so many other things. I never thought that I would or could lose any of it. I earned it, or deserved it all, so should never lose it, right? Wrong! Who was I? Just another alcoholic that could have anything taken away at any given time. But I was lucky enough to just get close enough to not lose it all. My family gave me one last chance and helped me out and I went to treatment. When I got back, my boss told me that when my mom called me in and said I was going to be gone for a while because I was going to treatment, if I would have been calling in sick, I would have been fired. A lot of people had had enough. I thought I had a lot of people fooled, the only person fooled was me. Don't lose what you have, you never know when you might. That's all I have for today. Have a great one!
