Milestones December 12, 2008

Milestones come in many sizes.  Yesterday, December 11, I got to celebrate two—one much larger than the other.

My best bud Mark turned 50.  He lives in Michigan and I in Florida so a card and phone call was all the celebration I could muster.  We yucked it up on the phone and shared some good memories of practically a lifetime of friendship.  I almost lost Mark nearly 10 years ago.  He suffered a heart attack at 40.  Quadruple bypass and a major correction in his lifestyle has gotten him to 50.  I am so thankful.

The other milestone was my 4 month anniversary of being sober.  Not nearly as big as a fiftieth birthday milestone.  Maybe a milepebble.

I am sure sobriety will add years to my life because I know I would have died sooner rather than later had I not stopped.

So it’s good to remember those milestones whatever the size.  Maybe one day my milepebble will grow into a real milestone.
