Twenty years ago, I nearly died. In the middle of an overdose, I felt my body tremble and braced for the slip.

Part of me was already gone – lost in a sea of darkness, waking only to hide from light.

Self-medicating was my answer.

     It only made the questions more difficult.

Today, I am new.

I bask in light, no longer hiding.

This, and for so many other reasons, is why I am thankful.

So tell me: What are you thankful for?
