PASSIONATE ABOUT LIVING
Tuesday, June 07, 2016
Today started with the news of a tragic passing of a client lost in her addiction of alcohol. We did everything we could to help her but her addiction was even stronger than the love I know she had for her daughter. Her demons greater than any one monster I could ever dream up. Her daughter has never known "sober mommy" and now she never will. Today, I am reminded of just how short life truly is and how important it is that I continue (along with my co-workers ) reaching for the hand of those who are down & need help with finding their way back to their loved ones.
My day has also ended with the tragic new of a 32 year old man that I knew who died of a drug over dose. He has a young son who for a few short years got to know the good hearted, loving, functional addict he calls daddy. And once again I am reminded that although I can't save them all & I can only help those who truly want help, I must continue to try & save one more "mommy ", one more "daddy " & prevent one more tiny broken heart.
So for Rachel's daughter & Scott's son we must move forward & attempt with each new day the saving of the next generation.
May you both find the peace you were searching for wherever your souls are.
I am passionate about saving my own life & preventing my own children from unnecessary heart ache even for one more day & thus why I endure the hassle of sweating when inconvenient to do so, packing food for a day & bringing it with me wherever I may go, despite the stares & strange looks. I love my family enough to love myself a little more.
