I wrote this in November 2016 and decided I wanted to share it with y'all!
Today I took my husband to the doctor. Today I went to the grocery store. Today I went to the pharmacy. Today I learned of illness and misfortune in the lives of a fair sampling of the people I know and trust. Today my dear friend knows her brother in Washington state is dying. Today my friend's brother may well die. Today I formed an opinion about life and forgot that opinion along with a number of other excursions down the rabbit hole. Today I made an effort to refrain from analyzing myself. Today I judged a number of people. Today I wanted to get high. Today I turned to another radio channel to wipe away the thought of "I want to get high." Today I experienced vulnerability. Today I sought and I found, I called out and I received an answer. Today I made the daily commitment to follow Christ. Today I read scripture. Today I made the daily commitment to stay sober. Today I made a conscious decision to love my husband unconditionally. Today I chose to let God love me unconditionally. Today I chose not to fear. Today I stood at the edge of the gaping maw of the abyss. Today I walked away from the abyss. Today I sang beautifully for several seconds in a row.

Today I chose to live in such a manner that I could be reasonably sure to wake up at peace tomorrow.
