We celebrate the Veterans of our nation today. I am eternally grateful for their service, the sacrifices made and the lives that each one has given to serve us as citizens and our country. And it's my birthday :-) I'm just pausing to thank God for this day, my good friends, my BFF, my family (both original and my husband and kids). While I've had many struggles, not all of which I've talked about here, I know that God has been with me each step of the way and used my mistakes to fulfill His purposes as well as opening doors and closing some as well.
Sometimes in the midst of alcoholic crazy-making behavior and dealing with it, I lose sight of the good that I have. Today I pause as I think of the Veterans of our Country, and the blessings I have too.
Have a great day, and stay warm!
