Happy, happy. Joy, joy.

I'm happy. Just plain happy. I think my family has been through so much trauma this last year or so that it's nice just to sit back and breathe. Obviously, there are areas of my life that need work, but I've finally gotten to that place that I lost so long ago. It's so rewarding to know that all the changes over the last six months have had a positive affect on my husband and children. I knew that I needed to make some changes, but I was afraid that I was being selfish. But if I didn't work on myself, I knew that I would die. It's so strange that my spiritual bankruptcy would bring me here to this person that I'm becoming: a better lover, a better wife and a better mother.

Because our baby girl was with my MIL, last night D and I were able to make love in our own bed. Afterwards, he held me all night long and even gently rubbed my back when he thought I was sleeping. Right now...right this second, I have no internal struggles about my sexuality or my sobriety. Right now, I'm at peace.

What a beautiful post, Gabby! I'm so happy for you, and I hope that I can say (without it sounding patronizing) that I am so proud of you, too!

Thanks, J! :-) A pat on the back is never patronizing and is always appreciated.

Just wanted to say I enjoy all your posts but this one reall speaks to me. I've never been an addict, thank God, but I have worked closely with them for many years not to mention my family members. I don't pretend to know how hard it is to quit drinking, but I have seen others through the struggle and I admire your strength and determination so much. You and others like you are my inspiration to be a better person.
