not forgotten.

This month I celebrated 21 sober months.
My husband bought me a cake.
It said, "Happy 21st"
Thanks, Hun...
I loved the frosting.

This picture was also taken this month.
I like this picture.
I can see myself again.

It really took a long time for this girl to come out of hiding.
I mean she quit drinking twenty-one months ago...
What took her so long?

I have stared at the stranger in the mirror I hope for the last time.
The stranger I both smiled politely at and I cursed at.
I think she is gone.

But not forgotten.


  1. I love this. Love that picture and love you :)

  2. Happy 21 months :)
    It's good to remember. Not dwell, but remember.
