This is simply from my own point of view, I was never terribly crazy about going on those things, I went because they were excited and I felt that it was my way of supporting them but going because I'm just so thrilled to go .....no not me.
Now, here we are and most of us don't want to be along for this ride but here we are, supporting recovery the best we can.
I just came back from a little trip to the beach with a friend and had some time to sit and watch others. I had time to still my mind and consider my life and the turns that it has taken. I saw this guy on the beach. I'm not sure what he was doing but he did look peaceful. He sat this way for a really long time, content in just being.
I'm trying my best to find ways of being grateful and content on this field trip. There is a lot to learn. Today is my son's 23rd birthday. He was born on mother's day. He's doing well and starting to understand the importance of his higher power.
So, today I am grateful for this journey and the lessons it has taught. I'm grateful to learn to be content where I am with what I've got. I am thankful for the gifts of your stories and support. I continue to pray for your sons and daughters journey of recovery and I say a prayer for Henry.
