Taking Refuge

Greetings Everyone!  My apologies for being gone so long; and thanks to those who have checked up on me these past couple of weeks.  I have been doing ok, but just taking refuge in God’s love, my real-time friends, my family, and on-line word games, lol.  One of those times when I tired of my addict-mom i.d. and needed a break from the computer screen.  Missed you all though…and always keep you in my prayers.

Update:  my son relapsed last week and ended up in the hospital.  The police found him, during his break from work, passed out in his car in the mall parking lot.  They brought him to the hospital.  They did not arrest him, thank God.  And he is fine.  He did not lose his job — another miracle.  Seems people are now trying to help him move forward.  Even those who don’t know him well.  Angels on earth.

Good news:  Yesterday Dan sat before a Community Corrections board (picture big long wooden conference table with suited community leaders on one side and Dan on the other, ha).  He must have done well because they approved his entrance into a Diversion Program.  Two years supervision and if he does well, he moves forward with a clean record!  No felony record!  He is so very excited and this is a great motivation for him, and confirmation that all adults/the corrections system are not out to get him, but are trying to help.  So please keep those prayers coming!

That’s all for now.  Be well.  Pray often.  Stand in the sunshine (we have some sunshine in Colorado today).  And be generous with Love.  God bless!

  1. I love this post. Your son relapsed and the reasons why you’re grateful are longer than all the negative emotions that could’ve been expressed. You’re one wise mama in my book.

  2. Thinking of you as you know. For some reason I knew he relapsed before I emailed you. Wish I could foretell what my daughter is up to. Keeping the prayers coming your way. I took a long walk today because the sun is shining brightly in PA. It helped me more than I could have imagined. Lets hope our children stay on the road to recovery.

  3. Oh this is good news (well the second part of the post…relapse is never good news). I am glad he is going to get help and feels encouraged that people do care. I am not going to stop praying for him!

  4. Despite the relapse, sounds like God’s angels were watching over him. So nice to have people helping him move forward.
    God bless.

  5. So sorry to hear of Dan’s relapse, but blessed with you to hear of the Diversion program and the fact that he is okay and was not arrested.

    Keeping you all in our prayers!
    Cheri and Wayne

  6. Prayers continue! I’m glad he is okay and doesn’t have an arrest added to his plate! I will pray that he is receptive to what he learns in the Diversion Program. God bless you and your family!

  7. Sorry for your son’s relapse. I very much identify with what you’re going through. My son brought me into Al-Anon over five years ago through his cocaine addiction. Went back out a couple of years ago, but has been clean since. Just got to take it one day at a time and take care of yourself. Happy to help in any way that I can. God bless!

  8. So happy to hear that there is sun after the rain. And, I think there are a few rainbows thrown in there. Thinking of you. Your strength and choice to be encouraging, positive, and optimistic, are inspiring. Thank you. Peggy

  9. Just realized that your link on my blog was wrong. It took everyone, including myself, to your “Prodigal Son” post only. So, I thought that you hadn’t posted since then. I just put all of this together, by chance. So – – – now I have listed your blog address correctly – and will catch up on all your past entries. Sorry if I’ve been MIA. Hugs to you, my very first responder to my own blog. You will always have a very special place in my heart. You are always in my thoughts. Peggy

    • Oh Peg. it’s good to hear from you. I think of you often. Haven’t been communicating much lately…but I need to . Will visit your blog soon. Thanks for checking in. God bless!
