Friday Flash 55, "The Road to Happy Destiny"

Find a photographic muse, let it guide your pen and tell a story.
Share it with G-Man and visit the other 55'ers!
My submission this time around celebrates my 15th AA anniversary today. Fifteen years ago today, I began my first sober day, and my life has gone in directions I cannot explain or be more grateful for. All I know is that I am eternally grateful to AA and the people who helped me find my way to recovery and back to God.
"We trudge a road together today.
Before I arrived, I could barely keep myself
between the lines, sometimes not at all.
You put me back together,
loved me til I could
love myself.
Now I give to others,
share what was freely given to me.
Gratitude falls far short of describing what I feel today."

God Bless and congratulations for staying your path. You have so much to share and your testimony is so encouraging not just for those who drink but for those of us with other trials. We all have them whether it physical, emotional or spiritual and the fact that we can come together and express our thanks and grratitude is an amazing blessing. Have a wonderful joyful day God Bless Patricia
