Letter From Shannon

Posted by Judith Kastle on

Tomorrow is my 1 year birthday. I'm feeling all the feelings right now. What a magical year it's been. I start my shares now with; Hi I'm Shannon, grateful alcoholic because I AM grateful. I am grateful for this beautiful design of living being brought into my life. I am grateful for the desperation that led to me surrendering. I am grateful to be alive, by the grace of God. Shit, I'm fucking grateful to understand what that even means! I am grateful that living this spiritual program in every aspect of my life has changed my life and all the promises continue to come true. I am grateful that as I stay spiritually fit I have the confidence to trust myself, my brain, my truth. I am grateful for the fellowship, feeling like I belong for the first time in my life. I am grateful for my higher power loving me when I didn't love myself and giving me the inner courage to do the work to love myself. I am grateful, so fucking grateful, the obsession to drink is lifted. 
I am grateful for you. 
Thank you for making me laugh, making me think and sharing your knowledge of the wonderful big book. 
I love you. 
Shannon, grateful alcohol, trying every day to live a life worth saving.
