I have learned through this journey of improved health and weight loss that there are many other things to celebrate - there are victories in all walks of life.
I am heading to Kingston Ontario today with my daughter to help my son celebrate one full year of total sobriety. He has invited his father, grandmother, aunt, sister and me to celebrate with him.
He is so proud of himself and so he should be - it has been a long hard walk thru life for him - and he has found joy once again thru sobriety - we can not be more excited for him....nor more proud.
He and I have discussed the similarities between my struggle with weight and food and his with alcohol and drugs. They are really quite similar as is the road to wellness - even the meetings we both attend are quite similar in function and fellowship.
I am very excited to be seeing him today.....just ahead of his 35th birthday ( June 23rd)....we will celebrate fully!!
love Mumsy ( his nick name for me)
