Happy Thanks

I’m going to keep this month’s column light and short! Hopefully the space between the lines filled with love, laughter, hope and thanks are felt from me to you.

In many ways it was a hell of a wonderful year, and yes it is true... (It’s hitting me)....the older we get the quicker the time goes.


My gratitude which is beyond words, extends to everyone who contributed to the 2015 editions of TGAZ.  We’ve featured some wonderful,inspiring writers with a wealth of information and ideas on addiction recovery as it moves forward and is being released from the shadows of shame. I hope this publication has inspired you to stay with us on this journey because a brighter day is ahead. 


I’ve worked too hard, and played too little — but my joy comes from being of service and helping others receive the gifts I have been blessed with. I’ve mended some fences, met wonderful new friends, opened my heart a little more and am completely ready for what God has in store for 2016.


There have been so many wonderful events I’ve been privileged to be part of, from the Pitch 4Kidz fundraiser, the In Recovery Gala and Expo in Prescott, Hunkapai Farm to Table Gala, the monthly PCS luncheons, the Passion Cafe’s, and my own baby, The Art of Recovery Expo which turned 10 this year. 


I stepped out of my usual comfort zone on a few occasions and traveled solo to a place I truly adore and met some extraordinary people along the way. No wonder I’m tired. 

During this holiday season, I think of my loving husband Bill, who I miss everyday saying, “Be good to yourself.”  He means that for all of us.  In gratitude,
