Grateful Heart Monday

Welcome to another Grateful Heart Monday! Today’s piece of gratitude is dedicated to another reader of my blog who took the time to write me personally and thank me for the all the personal testimony of my life that I continue to share on this site, TheTwelfthStep. Today’s piece of gratitude is solely dedicated to them because I feel truly blessed to having received yet another confirmation from God that this blog continues to help others.

As I’ve mentioned multiple times in my writing over the past few years, I’ve often wondered if my transparent sharing of my life about recovery from addiction, the PTSD I’ve suffered from, all my health struggles, and many other aspects of my life has even helped anyone besides me. This reader’s personal letter is yet another confirmation that it is, which I am so very thankful for and so, today’s Grateful Heart Monday is dedicated to “D.” (name removed for anonymity purposes) and their sincere words to me, which are included below…

Good morning! My name is D., and I found your site maybe a year ago by accident looking up various things about addiction. I think your journey and ongoing one is amazing. I get overwhelmed (even as an adult) by how much a single person can go through, and joyful when they find God to sustain them. I am currently reading a book called “All the Feels” by Elizabeth Laing Thompson on how to deal with feeling big emotions. She reminds readers of Isaiah 43:13 “From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done.” One verse out of many to remind us how He sustains us. I love the jokes too!! They are some of the best I’ve come across in a long time. Keep up your good work touching others. Best wishes, D.

D., thank you so much for reaching out, as it means more to me than you may know. I dedicate today’s Grateful Heart Monday to your sincerity and kindness to me. And best wishes to you as well…

Peace, love, light, and joy,
Andrew Arthur Dawson
