Dominosarah has hit the 6 year mark!

Our friend sara has a special day today, 6 years clean for her today if my math is correct.
Please join with me in wishing her a special day.
She has been a support to me and many others here and is a very special person.
sara you can't realize how many folks you have helped get clean and stay that way just because you have shown grace, support, and caring to all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! oh, and Guard Up!

This is great n now I have tears of joy for u.  You have been a blessing to me n so many others. You have touched my life n a way that I can not put into words. You have pi $$ ed me off n a way I can not put into words.  Lol. You have place n my heart n mind always. There were so many lonely nights where I struggled with life n there u were. When I lost my step dad u were there to walk me thru it all. Even gave me the right words to say when I left the casket. "See ya later" which I used n other funerals to follow. I can go on n on. I am a better person for having known u. I've been blessed by u my fran. :) I love u to the moon n back.

Sarah, I missed this on the 29th but I just found it (GDC -God driven coincidence)  Congratulations on 6 years of high octane sobriety!! You, above all give of yourself like no other. You're a classic example of the 12th step; you carry the message to addicts seeking help and you practice the principles. You've helped me through my recent trying times and I'll never forget it. Thank you for being here.

"Look at you, look at you, look at you now.  It is fun to have fun but you have to know how."

She dances to the songs in her head, speaks from the rhythm of her heart and loves from the depth of her soul.

I love both of these but particularly the second. They kind of follow one another. The first must be mastered before the second may follow. You've done this in spades & I wish you all the joy, health & peace your hard work has earned you.

Thanks for guiding so many of us 'MH Ships' away from the rocks & into safer waters. Your words have always held weight. Congratulations on 6 years clean & sober Sara!!!!

With Respect & Gratitude,

I have to admit i saw this when i got home from work this afternoon.  I was overwhelmed.  I thought about what i could i say to all of you while at my other job tonight.  Now i am just emotional.  When i got here in 2008 i was so broken and so so sick.  It was do or die so i did,  I came clean to everyone and got honest with myself.  I found a program that worked for me and i am still working it.  I found this was a "we" thing, not an "i" thing.  I found me for the 1st time ever and i actually like who i am.  My mouth gets me in trouble from time to time but i dont sugar coat here or in my personal life.  I got my daughter back and i finally feel like her mom.  I am in love with my best friend.  He is good for me as he calls me out and that is something i dont like but something i need.  I hate when someone has me figured out!!!  I have 2 grandbabies who are the loves of my life.  I am living now, not just existing and it feels so good.  Each and everyone of you who walk thru this forum have helped me get where i am today.  I still feel like a toddler in the pull ups stage as i have so much more to experience in this thing we call life.  Years ago i was the life of the party, today i am the life of recovery.  Doesnt get any better than that.  The day i decided i was going to quit drugs i saw in the paper my horoscope.  It goes like this....

Your in a mood to strut and you have good reason to do so.  As the great Dr Suess wrote "Look at me,look at me, look at me now.  It is fun to have fun but you have to know how."

I saw this one tonight and it explains a little more about me......

She dances to the songs in her head, speaks from the rhythm of her heart and loves from the depth of her soul.

Thank you everyone for being a part of my recovery and all the kind words.  Sending love and hugs to all~sara

It will never be forgotten. I wish you so much happiness.  As the old Tina Turner song says, "You're Simply the Best"!! Much love to you.

Great job Sarah!!   What an awesome accomplishment. I have to admit Yours and addicts posts have left an impression on me because I also would have have had 6 years this month if I had not relapsed 2.5 years in. 2008 was the first time I had any real continuous sobriety. I relapsed in late 2010 and again in early 2012 for a short time. Once you relapse it is easier to relapse again for me anyway. I am ok with it because I am where I am sheerly because of the decisions I have made. Oh well I have five out of the last six and almost two in a row right now so enough about me. Congratulations and thank you for helping the people here. Hope you celebrate in a non animal eating way today. ;)))))      Badass!!

Did I hear a HOLLA....HEY YA'LL, DID I HEAR SARA HAS SIX?....SIX YEARS THAT IS!!!
Hahahaha!  That is cartwheel turnin, two step dancing, "get down, get down, get down tonight" kinda..NEWS!!

We celebrate with you in style, Miss Sara.....not only are you one of our community leaders...you are JUST EXACTLY what Lesa said about you up above..."firm but kind guidance"..."a funnier than hell straight shooter"..
"with the heart the size of your personality"...!!!

I couldn't describe you any better....except maybe to add calling you my "iron marshmallow" friend.  And yes, you ALWAYS manage to say in 5 words what it takes me 50   (ok...dang, it's an honest program....500) words to say!!!!

I noticed in your post for Addict3 yesterday that you describe him the very same way Lesa describes you......so it is probably true that we are drawn to those people that reflect a part of us that we may not have even discovered yet.  You said he was "gentle but firm"......and Lesa said you were "firm but kind".  Though I am irritatingly more detailed.....I am a straight shooter too.....and I need/like people to deal with me the same way.  It may hurt to hear the truth....but I NEED to hear it.....addiction is a deadly disease with no happy endings.....and I'm just jazzed that you have chosen to stay around here investing your time, heart and wisdom into the lives of addicts that still suffer.  I appreciate you....and love being able to call you my friend.  Here's to many, many more years....hard earned...one day at a time~
Much love,
Connie
