Birthday Hugs And Kisses

This is a special day.

It is Halloween eve.

It is Henry Winkler's birthday, and Otis Williams, and Ruth Gordon (we just watched her in the old movie Harold and Maude).

What makes this day special for me is that my hubby is sixty years old today. He is still young thinking. A cool dude. His body is showing signs of wear and tear but after the thirty-something years on drugs and alcohol it isn't any wonder. His nine years clean and sober are something to celebrate.

So today we celebrate his sixtieth birthday with a special emphasis on his recovery.

congratulations to your husband, the big 60, Congratulations to his sobriety for 9 years. I deal with this with Wain, he is on again, off again, I try not to enable, but he has his own ideas and I can't do it for him. I do worry about an early death. He works and is very active with sports...we take it a day at a time. IF you have any advice, i would love to hear from you. take care and happy day.
