On This Date in Milwaukee

November 3 was a Thursday in 1988.

The weather was about normal for that time of the year: High around 52, low around 40. Not unusual.

The week before had been generally cooler and quite windy.

Life was about to change.

Entering treatment for alcoholism is enough to do that.

This morning I opened a daily meditation book that I was given on that day. I hadn't even thought about it until I looked and up in the corner was just the number "1" with a circle around it.

Day 1 of now 23 years. The first set of 24 hours of sobriety that has made life nothing short of miraculous.

Give thanks, with a grateful heart!
