Today is my birthday and I know that all over the world there are celebrations and parties planned for this evening. To many this may feel this is a great reason for celebration but all I want for my birthday is for everyone to be wise and safe for today.
Please do not overindulge on my behalf. Above all, please do not drink and drive.
Not to stress anyone out with those resolutions, that none of us intend to keep anyway; today let's look back on last year. Tomorrow we can look forward to a new year. Today think of something you are grateful for this past year and share it with two people. We should all end this year on a positive.
I am grateful my son has found recovery and maintained his recovery but that is stating the obvious.
I am grateful that I have happy and healthy children and grandchildren.
I am grateful for people that help others because none of us should be alone.
