Thanks for bumping this thread!
Lots to be grateful for.

  • Tons of support from loving and knowledgeable, experienced people as we journey through another big life change.
  • A very successful nap after some sleepless nights.
  • Green things popping up everywhere, finally!
  • Quality alone time with my thoughts and meditations.
  • Stability during uncertainty. A major source of that stability comes from being in recovery.
