Yesterday I felt like I was at a wedding!  My wife and I had a little party at Fioza,,  the awesome coffee shop where I wrote WTSBTM.  Michael, the owner, was kind enough to have opened it just as I started writing and I was frequently the only patron there.  I gave him the gratitude I felt the best way I knew how.  His mother catered it and we had an amazing cake, they made their delicious coffee drinks, and I was smiling ear to ear.  My wife made a great speech and I followed with something like:
When Amy & I first got married, she was excited to marry a doctor who was fun and outdoorsy.  After a year, though, her bar lowered to, “I just want a husband who can finish a sentence.”  Many of you were there to witness the first hand pain and suffering.  Well, I can finish a few sentences now!  But this would mean nothing without everyone else.  I am so grateful to have you in my life and to have a second chance and to have the opportunity to help others do the same.
This is recovery, this is life, this is awesome!
