My Sober Journal...Looking Back

Here is another tidbit from my journal.  This was written June 2nd, 2009, at around 2.5 months of sobriety.  
6:30am on the dock...

The tide is rushing out and the sun is making it's way out of hiding.  Complete calm.  This is a perfect moment.  God, help me to live in this exact moment in time--to be aware of the amazing miracles all around me---right here---right now.  

Help me to always see people, see your creation, with a heart of gratitude.  Life is fresh and new each day I am sober.    

This is Your gift to me---wrapped in the mist of the morning---tied with a big bow that is the sunrise!  
Oh, how You love me!  


  1. Jill- I just re-read your original blog. In it you talk about not being perfect. Well, I think you are perfect just the way you are! You have overcome so much and are a better person for it. I am glad we got to visit last month and remember I am always here for you! Love you bunches, Debbie

  2. You are so very amazing Jill Suzanne Kelley Tennison! You have always had such a huge heart. Who else would be BOBFF with a trailer park girl living in very yucko conditions....even spending the night with no Air Conditioning! And yet we both still smile when we remember those times, eh? I left too early to escape but will always see you as the BOBFF that saved me. Love you and bless you for sharing your journey. BOBFF Pammy
