It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

You know how we in recovery talk about that rock bottom moment that led us to choose sobriety?  Well, here are some pictures taken by my talented children that hopefully mark the rock bottom of this winter.  Happy Daylight Savings Time to those who celebrate it… it is the most hopeful day of the year for this gal 🙂


Today’s Miracle:

That I have been asked to speak again on the incredible podcast, The Bubble Hour, this evening.  The topic is drinking dreams, tune in if so inclined!

  1. Cool. I will definitely listen in. Being a guest for those fabulous ladies is so exciting.

    Happy daylight savings. That’s a lot of snow! One advantage of living in the frozen north is we get less snow as it is often just too cold.

  2. Happy DST to you, too 🙂 I’m enjoying a warm afternoon in North Carolina…the warmest in a while! Hope you thaw soon!

  3. The pictures are lovely! Very talented photographers you have there. This last snow was especially pretty, and hopefully it was the last snow. Can’t wait to hear you on the Bubble Hour. You’ll do great like last time.

    We had a heat wave in MN! 47 today!
    Here’s to sunshine, too!!!


  5. Fabulous appearance on the Bubble Hour. I thought you all shared a lot of great thoughts, especially the post event letdown period. I often feel this, and I see it often on other blogs. Sometimes just getting through a tough time is so taxing. At time like that it is hard to know how we might act. These are times that we need to lean on our sober support groups.

    I also loved the naked in the closet comment from Jean. Obviously it is safer to avoid alcohol whenever possible. Putting pressure on ourselves to purchase, pour or serving alcohol can be triggering. It is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of self care.

    Thanks for sharing your story and experiences!!!!!

    • Anne, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the validation! I got more out of it than I every could have transmitted, that’s for sure, it was such a wealth of information on a topic I hadn’t thought much about!


      • It was a great topic. Jean had asked me if I was available, but I didn’t think I had anything to say about dreams. Although listening in lots of things came to mind.
        And I think you really have good advice to new people or people who might be struggling. Important.

        Isn’t it funny how it is like a blur after? I did a show in May last year and even when I listen to it I can’t believe it’s me.


  6. Right there with ya girl!!!! Happy Daylight Savings Time!

  7. Great Josie – trying to find a way to download the podcast so I can listen on my bike rides. Or is it only by streaming you can listen?? Looking forward to hearing it!
