Sometimes as we journey through this addiction with our son it is easy to become overwhelmed with the despair and anger of his addiction. What he drags us through in the name of his problem is something every parent of an addict knows all too well.
It's time to lighten up for a minute. We have a new granddaughter. She is 4.5 months old and she is our first grandchild. I know some of you are already grandparents so I'm sure this is redundant to jabber on about a baby but I beg your forgiveness and patience.
Brooke can roll over now. She is becoming more and more active. I think she is beginning to recognize others, at least it feels like she is recognizing us. She smiles when we are close and laughs when we talk to her. I want to think it is because Grandpa and Grandma are special but I know she does it for everyone else too. She is a happy baby. She is truly a ray of sunshine in our life.
Maybe today I need to think more about the sunshine instead of brooding over the clouds. Maybe today we all need to think about the sunshine.
