Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford foundation is:
The gods bless you.
We have cause for celebration. Though as individuals and as a community we may have suffered losses, let’s remember that we are still here and stronger than ever before. Our joys are meant to be spoken, sung, danced, and shared.
Celebrations are ways to acknowledge ourselves and one another, give praise and thanks for our accomplishments, strengthen our sense of identity and connection, and reinforce our dedication to our dreams.
We have survived. We have a voice. We have helped to nurture and heal one another, physically and spiritually. We have used our many talents to help make the world saner and more beautiful. We have reinvented the family. We’ve expanded the known boundaries of love. We’ve been faithful to our visions.
Today, I have cause to celebrate.
