Always keep the door ajar.

I lost his phone number many years ago while in the throes of an 8 year Meth addiction I forgot to stop.

Desperately owing him a fourth step apology, my Facebook friend request went unacknowledged for the past three years, until yesterday.

He messaged me to say he was happy I finally got my life back together and would like to have lunch when he’s in town.

Recovering the worst mistakes of your life are rarely given such fortunate opportunity when you give up too soon or lose the humility that brought you to it in the first place and keeps the door to it always ajar.

I’m Don Miller, a grateful recovering addict for life.
