I've been outed

I was just driving down the street, minding my own business.

One of the best things (and most difficult) about recovery is the responsibility that returns once we get sober. While it's a nightmare watching family members and/or friends struggle with the difficulties in their lives. It's so reqarding to be able to be there and be supportive, rather than not be there at all, or only be there for personal gain.

dAAve, I have read your posts for awhile now, and not a day goes by that you neglect to update us on your mom's progres and your gratitude for being able to be there. It's so awesome to see the Program doing what it was intended to do. Not only are you able to be there and help your mom and family, but the idea of drinking isn't even in the picture. Now there's a perfect example of how we are saved, through giving freely and helping others. I am grateful to you for sharing your experience with your mom.

I will continue to pray for you and your family!

peace to all of you

As the other Scott said, it is awe inspiring to see how the program can work, does work, in our lives. But I am luckier than most of your readers, because I get to see it up close and in person every day. Absolutely inspiring.

ps, Bloggeer won't let us comment on the above post.

Daave, You are currently going through one of the most difficult passages in life. And you are fully participating -sober, and full of grace, dignity, and humor. You are there for your mom and that is priceless. I am truly grateful that you share about this.

Your Mom is very lucky to have you for a son.

This really has been a test of the principles you have learned in the program, and they all seem to be serving you well. It's amazing how people can accomplish what might seem to be unbearable or undoable if they just keep doing the "next right thing," over and over and over.....
