About Karen T

I am a 52 year old widow who lives with her son, dog and cat. I work as a Sterile Processing Assistant at a local hospital here in town. I have been sober since April 18, 1982 and have not smoked since September 8, 2005. I am a Born Again Christian who loves Jesus and am grateful for each day I wake up. I have found that even in the hard times, like after my husband's suicide that I can still find things to be grateful for, even if they are little things. God always has my back.

Happy Monday.

Good weekend spent with family.

My credit score is finally decent again after three years of working at it.

It is a beautiful Fall day.


Waking up sober another day!

My son and pets.

My mother-in-law.  So glad she is alive. At almost 84, she is still kicking!


Grateful this site is here.  It is harder to post on my phone, so don’t get here as much. I miss it when I don’t.

Grateful my dog didn’t get away when a part of his cable outside broke.

A.A. and church.


A beautiful Fall day.

Good food.

My A.A. family.




It is there…

Even when I wake up in my head and projecting,  I can find things to be grateful for. It is always there.

GOD (my Higher Power).

A roof over my head.

My family and pets.


Cooler weather.

Prayer and meditation and my Bible.



Having the money to pay off the house project.  They  just sent me the final bill the other day.



A new day

Up early for work and enjoying the quiet.

My pets roaming around.

Memories of getting together with family in memory of my husband, true dad and grandpa.

Thinking about my future.

Sobriety and not smoking.

God and my church.

My A. A. family.



Thankful for the almost 25 years my husband I had together before he took his life three years ago on this date.

I have the day off to relax and spend time with my son later.

I got to talk with my mother-in-law last night. She said she would be think of me today.

Having time off this week to celebrity birthday with loved ones.

Moving forward.
