It’s all new 7/24

On January 1st 2010 I adopted 2 kittens – Pickles and Snoopy. They were about 3 months old.

When I adopted them I was still in active addiction. I did not get clean until May 23rd 2010. I spent about 35 days away from home at a detox and a rehab on Cape Cod Massachusetts.

When I came home in July of that year Pickles and Snoopy were already about 9 months old.

I missed the kitten phase. I was unable to be present.

Thank you to god, today I am present for our new baby kitten Eve. We have only had her a day but I am deeply in love with her.

She follows me around. She is so tiny. So curious. So damn funny.

I did not realize that god was giving me something that I did not even know I had missed.

I can’t explain it but “in god’s time” is so true. Beauty comes and second chances when I am ready to receive and appreciate it.

This is god’s grace.

****side note ( it is also taking me 10x longer to write because she just loves jumping on my lab top out of nowhere!)

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!
