I just wanted to express a little gratitude. Like many of you, I had lost everything towards the end of my drinking. Today, I am blessed to be able to look around at my life and be amazed at how full it is. I have a loving family that looks to me for guidance, I have two beautiful children that look at me as an example. I may not have all of the money in the world, but we certainly make it work. And, even if we don't make it work, it will be okay. These things did not come back overnight, and it was sometimes painful repairing what was broken. But, like our progress in the gym, those slow and steady changes provided a juice that was worth the squeeze. Thank you all for being here.

Gratitude grateful to that something greater, something more than us. That something that makes all these pieces of this complex and miraculous puzzle fit and work. There is only so much we can do for ourselves and help from others, it is that which is hard to quantify that gives me the strength, and those that are suffering and have real serious issues that make our problems look tiny, to give those the strength and gratitude for another day. Thanks
