Tom Celebrates 24 Years Sobriety!


 This day, May 20th, marks Tom's 24 years of sobriety!

This day is more special to him than his birthday.

I am so very proud of him
God has given him so very much,
 turned all the bad in his life to all things new.
He runs a halfway treatment home for men in recovery, 
helping 24 men at a time, for 90 days, 
getting them back into life, jobs, AA groups, and 
making the right choices.
It's a hard job with little fruit, 
but he is a gift to all these men.

I love him so much for all he's done with his life, 
and for all he is!

  9. God bless him! That's wonderful. I grew up with an alcoholic stepfather, so I know how hard it can be.

  11. Absolutely beautiful Jamie. Congratulations to you Tom! My mother-in-law has been sober for about 15 years. I am so grateful I've gotten to know the "real" person she is, for her heart is so full of love.

    (My uncle is certain he'd be dead were it not for a facility like the one Tom runs.) May God continue to bless you, Tom!!

    And congratulations to your family!

  16. Yes, wonderful. I wish I could say the same for my dad. My mom, however, is on her 22nd year sober - though she is very private about it. I am glad to read happy news today. :)
