I just wanted to take a second to thank you for all that you have afforded me in my life over the past year. There are absolutey no words that can describe how you have positively influenced my life. Through the thick and thin, the bad times and the good, you have been there for me. Today God has allowed me a second chance of life, a new perspective and a new set of glasses to look at the world with. I know that everyone does'nt get this opportunity; this disease is baffling and in short the definition of the word insanity. I must make the most out of this new life, and give away what was so freely givento me by the people I hold dearest in my heart. One of my favorite quotes my Dad blessed me with is "Persistene and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and alway will solve the problems of the human race." - Calvin Coolidge. It has meant so much in my sobriety and taken on a completely new meaning. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
