Happy Thanksgiving Week! Always a time when friends and family connect for good food, laughter, and memories. My mom is a mother of six kids and a grandmother of eleven grandkids. I love to see her happiness around the grandchildren and adult kids. It is interesting for me to watch everyone in their lives since I still remember each one as a child. The kids are close to one another and live a happy and structured life. As we transition through each phase of our development, from childhood to adolescents to adulthood, we are blessed to have one another. There was a period of time when this was not a reality for me, both in and out of my recovery. As we near the end of 2022, I plan to continue to enjoy these moments with loved ones. Life is too short to take these moments for granted.
