Inspirational Prayer of the Day

Okay, I shook the anxiety...

Whew. I'm better.

I'm so thankful for son #2. Went out to eat with son~ he's such a great kid and I'm so proud of the young man he's grown to be. I realize that in my short blogging life, I don't mention son #2 often, as my primary reason for blogging is to vent about addiction. But, I have to say that he gives me great joy, just being around him. Going out to eat was a good distraction from my anxiety over son #1. I love both of my sons beyond belief.

I'm also very thankful for my husband. I admire his strength in all that we're going through. He called after I returned from dinner, and said that he spoke with the girl who left the message. She told him that our son is saying he wants to come home. But, right now his complete existence involves getting his next fix. She feels he's tiring of it all. We're hoping to arrange something on Friday. We know an interventionist in town, and he said that he's ready to help us when son wants it. So, I'm going to call him tomorrow and see if he's able to meet with us to help formulate a plan for if/when son does come by.

I feel better, and I'm counting my blessings in life...

  5. I think my brothers and I take turns giving my mom stress. I enjoy being there for her when she's upset. It kind of haunts me though to think about the dinners she's had with my brothers when it was ME who was making her cry.

  6. Like you, I have two sons that fill my heart. Currently, they are both living a clean life but I've been through years of addiction and all that goes with it. God will sustain you, restore you and make clear to you the way that you should go in these areas. Stay faithful!
