7 years sober...from politics!
It is all-too convenient to have a personal day of remembrance land on a national day of remembrance. It......well.......reminds me to remember I guess. Each Veterans Day rolls around and it takes me back to a long day of prayer after a week of fasting...and a pretty significant decision in my life.
I was having dinner with a friend Sunday night and recounting this story nearly took me off-guard in the realization that, yes, tomorrow is November 11th, the 7th anniversary of being sober from politics as it were. Here is a blog post from the first anniversary in 2007 and a second post written in 2008 that described what led to the decision.
