Well, I have been thinking a great deal about blogging lately. So many things going on in my mind, but where do I start? I have a few minutes to share some thoughts and I will jot a few notes so I don’t forget some of my other ideas to share. And, why am I doing this today?
Because my friend, JoAnn missed me. Yep, I have a reader who has been looking for my new posts and she told me she missed me.
Since she and I spoke I have had a friend of mine from my childhood on my mind, in my heart, and for sure in my prayers. I think of him often, and pray for him more than he will ever know, but right now… my bath taking, baby strolling, drummer boy buddy needs prayers. If you can find a moment to say a quick one for him… please do.
For years he has struggled with addiction problems. The first time he went to rehab I was a freshmen in college and his girlfriend and I were both pregnant at the time. I remember it being around Mother’s Day. What an amazing gift for him to get his addictions under control before his baby was born and as a way of saying I got this world… I am going to make a great dad.
Many years have passed, our boys are both grown and adults now. He has been sober off and on throughout the years. And I pray… harder than I ever have for this trip to rehab to be the one that sticks.
I was looking for a nice quote to share… but addiction isn’t nice and pretty and rehab and recovery are hard work… I found this small tidbit and wanted to share it with everyone to see into the disease just a little bit.
Love to my friend and his family!
Take Care of You
