I'm Out

My home is about to be besieged with all manner of chicks coming home to roost for the holiday.

I am so happy I could BURST.

So I'm stepping away from the computer for a week or so.  I know, I'll miss me but think of this as a growth experience.

Just kidding.

To all of my blogger friends, thank you for hanging in there with me this past year.  Your support has meant the world to me.  Plus, I think it's pretty cool that I have friends in London, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and even Yemen for Gods sake (I think I just misspelled that...sorry).  Not to mention those close enough to actually meet whether by getting in my car or taking advantage of a upcoming business trip.  Your blogs have pulled me through some low times and your comments have let me know I'm not writing in a vacuum...that you understand what's going on in my crazy head, and you like me anyway.  (You like really - sorry, lost my mind there for a sec).

Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year guys.  And if you're new to sobriety and need a pep talk, I'll be checking email.  You're not alone.

And sobriety is the greatest Christmas miracle there is...I promise.

To everyone, I wish you peace.



  1. Have a beautiful Christmas Mama! I am so glad you are here and will miss you, but look forward to your return!

  2. Merry Christmas! I hope you have a fabulous time!!!!! We'll be waiting for you!

  3. Merry Christmas! Says a lot that all your chicks want to come to your nest to roost, I hope you realise what a huge gift you are offering your loved ones by having gotten yourself sober. You are present and authentic for them all, and that is beauty personified. Sending big love xxxx

  4. Oh Sherry - what a wonderful going away for us, and the newcomer :)

    I can't say enough about how much you give of yourself here and elsewhere. Lots of changes in your life and in your spirit and we have bore witness to it, thanks to your honesty and your willingness to show what great sobriety and recovery looks like. you are indeed a hero and friend to me.

    Blessings and Merry Christmas!!


  5. Happy Christmas to you and yours and I wish you a sober new year.

  6. Merry Christmas My Friend! I'm heading to one of my chicks for the holiday, what a difference from the darkness I could see encroaching more and more on my holidays just three Christmas's ago. You're one of my blessings.

  7. Merry Christmas new friend. Enjoy the full house. Happy New Year too. Will be my first sober one in years!

  8. Happy Christmas and New Year! Enjoy your magic house. xx -Jen
