Today it begins. Yesterday was the shortest day of the year. Now we begin the turn to longer days. With each new day there is more sunlight and an assurance of brighter times ahead.
The season always reminds me of the kindling of hope that happens as a person begins the journey from addiction to recovery. A faint beginning at first, doubts about ever getting to a brighter place, but with each day the hope and confidence in new possibilities and better days builds.
I wish you all a wonderful holiday season. Enjoy the accomplishments and build upon the challenges of the past year. Kindle the hope and make sure plans for a happy and healthy New Year.
