Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite holiday. It’s a celebration and recognition of all that is good, and it’s a gathering of family and friends to share a wonderful meal.
Several years ago, in the chaos of our son’s addiction, I decided to start posting one example of gratitude each day during November. The idea took off and the OYA Community began sharing their examples of gratitude on Twitter and Facebook. I hope you will join us this year with the hashtag #Gratitude2017 to share your blessings.
This year, our son is back in treatment. We don’t know yet if he will be out for Thanksgiving or if we will be traveling over the river and through the woods to visit him. What we do know is that he is doing what he needs to do to return to sobriety and recovery. For this, we are grateful.
Day 1 – Today, I am grateful that we are going to visit our son this evening and will attend the family program at his treatment center. We’ve had a couple of brief phone calls since he started last week, but this will be our first in-person visit and I can’t wait to see him, hug him and be with him. #Gratitude2017
