Brothers

Last weekend my two sons got together and spent the whole weekend together. This feels like progress. They haven't spent that much time together for over a year. I am proud of myself- I only texted one time- just to make sure #1 son arrived. I will admit that I picked up my phone 3 more times over the weekend to call and see how they were doing, but I didn't call- I let them be.

Other good news, son has decided to stay with the program for another 30 days. He's already moved into another house with more privileges. Next step is a job... kind of hard to do without a phone and vehicle, but he'll have to figure that out.

I thank God for the work He is doing on me and in my heart.

  4. Some of my fellow mom's of addicts talk about how we walk around with the phone in our hand, wanting to call so badly but knowing we shouldn't...so we just walk around holding our phone. Some kind of weird security in that phone being in hand.

    Sounds like you are doing a great job.

  5. Great that you picked up that phone and put it down, awareness is so key it seems for all of us, and then to refrain from acting on it, very strong. I love that they were able to spend time together and the hope jumps off your page. God Bless!
