I am absolutely filled with it today. What an amazingly fantastic life this is!! Not always perfect for sure, but absolutely filled with more peace and joy than I thought was ever possible.

My weekend was spent with the three loves of my life...filled with lots of happy times, pancake breakfast at their school, first basketball game of the season, dance off's, ZooZoo pets extravaganza, best Christmas movie ever (Polar express) and lots of laughs...some stressful and tearful moments including, fights over the wii, Christmas present peeking, heart to hearts about honesty and kindness, and a very emotional last night. Every single moment, I am grateful for. What a great gift of sobriety!! Being a present mom, friend and partner to the people in my life is not always easy, quite uncomfortable sometimes, but always, always most fantastic!!
