Healthier

I am a much healthier person today in more ways than one ~ spiritually, mentality, physically, and emotionally.  I don't even have any more intermittent funky days.  Having said that ~ OF COURSE ~ I'm concerned about my sons.  Of course ~ like any mom who loves her children will always be concerned and sometimes worry over their safety and well being.  It's different now, however.  It's taken a long time but I've finally realized that the best way to love and care for my grown children is to let them make their own decisions - good or bad.  Sounds simple but with an adolescent drug addict turned "adult" it was a bit confusing.  Not anymore.  Finally - Finally - I've Let Go and Let God......

We didn\'t go to the ocean after all but did our 5th Step work over 11 hours in each others\' homes. We are not quite done. Taking turns to share. Very grateful that we laugh a lot. it\'s not our first time, so it didn\'t feel like such a heavy chore, but we already know that the rewards are waiting to be claimed when we are done.
Today I feel much lighter, and my sense of self-acceptance is growing. it so lightens my heart to share and have it be accepted or discussed and laughed with sometimes.
We talked about the early days of choosing chaos over recovery. I made several \'wrong\' choices in the early days. Talked about those. But fortunately, I kept coming back.
Seeing you are doing better lightens my heart, also. There\'s a lot of life out there to enjoy for ourselves......
