We lost my Uncle Danny yesterday and while it’s sad that he’s gone, I’m grateful that one of my earliest memories from childhood was him playing with me at the playground. He showed me how to do a “skin-the-cat” on the rings. I was perhaps 3 or 4 at the most.

My head cold seems to be in retreat and I’m grateful to be starting to feel better. With the exception of going to the drug store, I haven’t left the house all week. I may get out for a much needed walk today.

Yesterday, I got a text message from a man who I’ve never met in person, but with whom I’ve had a few conversations. He is a friend of a friend, and last year I took a call from him to talk about his drinking problems. He wanted to let me know that yesterday was his 1 year sobriety anniversary. It was truly the best text message of 2020. I’m grateful that I was able to help another person find this path of recovery.
