The Best Things in Life


One of the realizations of recovery; sure it's nice to get back some of the "things"
we lost due to addiction. Once we have the essentials, it's time for an appreciation
for the things we have; without seeking to accumulate the trappings of excess.

There comes a certain point where we discover how essential our relationships
with family, friends and co-workers are. That is the true measure of health and wealth.
Just knowing that we can be trusted by those closest to us, is important.

Trust me, no one loves "toys" more than I do!
What I've discovered is, I now get more joy out of giving,
than I do receiving.

I guess I'm finally growing up.

I am finding that the more "recovered" I become the less I need in terms of material "things". Amazing. Who'd 've thunk it.

Dear John,
If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,
for you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the Lord will reward you.
—Proverbs 25:21-22

I, MICKY, AM A GIFT TO ALL PEOPLE.
