I have been wanting to add to the Recovery blog for some time. My story is too long to give today, but during this Holiday Season of 2012-2013, I am encouraged in my soul. First, I am staying sober. Second I cancelled a planned trip to the Benectine Monastery I am affiliated with by way of being a comitted obate.
Both are the right thing for me. Sobriety is a gift which lets me live more normally than not. My private retreat at Conception Abbey was cancelled by me because my 92 year old just got sick. Only with God's grace am I able to do the right thing. May Jesus renew us this season. (Anonymous)
