Congatulations EvolverU! One Year Clean!!!

So, this post is approximately 40 hours early since officially her 1 year isn't until Christmas Day but I thought I would post it early from a strategical standpoint as I want as many Med Helpers to partake in this celebration as possible. I figured there wouldn't be that much traffic on the forum Christmas Eve and Day and wanted Annie to get the full props she deserves.

Congratulations my dear friend. You are beyond amazing in my books. We have many things in common...good and bad. Ive watched you overcome a lot this past year but to be honest...there was never really any doubt in my mind that you would. You are a very strong and smart person. Your presence on the forum is felt by many. I know you dont post as much any more because of work....but when you do, everybody benefits from what you have to say. Personally, Ive always enjoyed reading your posts. They are always heartfelt and accompanied wisdom. You take your time and listen to what people have to say and respond in kind instead of making it about you. SELFLESS! I appreciate you. I look forward to learning more from you. I hope you do something special not just today but everyday because because your a special kinda person.

In honor of your 1 year clean and your daily songs, Id like to present you with this jukebox. This is my gift to you. Now, all you have to do is convince MH to let you install it and you can charge a quarter per song. :)

(P.S. When are we going trainspotting again?)

Love ya!

Annie I purchased a small rocket that is to be shot into space on the moment of your one year clean.  You need to look up to the north north west at said moment to see it. I hope it is not cloudy out so you can get the full benefit of this .
