It's late but...
It's late and I am having to awaken at 3 am
For a sister road trip as it's sister C's birthday
So we are all going to Houston to take in
A Michael Jackson concert.
Yeah, I know he's dead but C loves him
And I don't think she believes it soooo
Every year on this date though I cannot forget
A very important thing.
Today baby boy celebrates 8 years of sobriety.
Happy AA birthday, BB!
Every year I Speak of all I am grateful for,
All he has accomplished in his
Years of sobriety.
This year I thought to look and see what other
Important events have happened on this most important
Day in our lives, on February 9th:
1) the Beatles came to the US for the first time in1964
On the Ed Sullivan show
2) 1971, Syimar earthquake killed 65 on a Richter
Scale of 6.6.
3) 1950 postal stamps went up from 1 cent to 2 cents
4) 2009 30 mummies were unearthed in a 2,600 year old tomb.
Number 5 is just as important to me today as baby boys sobriety.
As it is this day that also makes 8 years that my besties
Daughter beat cancer.
Linz has also become one of my best friends in the last
Few years and for her, and for my baby boy,
I am very humbled and extremely blessed.
