i believe in miracles !?!?!?!?....

<humming, since you came along you sexy thing, you sexy thing you... sorry>

i just got off the phone with my husband - my sister (who has not spoken to me or her kids in almost 2 months - who is in active addiction - who's bf lil guys father is in jail for assaulting a police officer - who has been reaching out to people since last tuesday) called my husband to ask if she could use our address to go to a one year rehabilitation program here in indiana (she lives in illinois) she found out about this program when she lived with us for a couple of weeks over the summer (their electric and gas had been shut off - she was starting to get things figured out here ie; housing, public assistance, etc..) her oldest son, 17 and lives in florida with his dad, had to do 20 hours of community service and i found the volunteer program through the paper - he volunteered for a women's shelter/drug program house - over the summer she kind of volunteered a bit of her time their too - it's a faith based, huge older home where recovering addicts live with their kids - she apparently called them this morning and they have room in a one year program but you need to live in this county to participate in this one year program - she said she needed an address and husband said she was incredibly nervous - she asked that i not call her or anything because it would just scare her (not sure why i'm not as angry at her as she thinks i am) - my husband asked how she was going to get here (he felt she sounded in no way able to drive the 4 hours to get here - or to the program around here) and sister said she will find a way if she can use our address - husband told her of course she could and he hopes this works - she told my husband she appreciates us watching the kids and will pay us back somehow...

soooo....... here i sit - typing away to all of you who have prayed so much and shared so much and wondering - is this really happening? i called my mom and she didn't answer - i don't know if she is driving sister here or if sisters' boyfriend, lil guys dad, is still in jail - i really don't know anything - i just hope this is really going to happen - i hope...

do miracles happen? i haven't said one word to anyone except my husband - he wanted me to find out if this was just *quacking* or if it was for real but i don't want to call anyone - since mom didn't answer i don't want to get my hopes up and then be disappointed but this is something so good - i had to share with someone - please pray for my sister - that this is real - and that her lil guys will get their mom back...

Sending prayers for your sister. Maybe losing her children was the wake up call she needed to try to get her life back. At least it is a start in the right direction. Just keep your expectations low. It is her recovery and she must do it her way. Hugs, Marle

You crazy nut - everytime I see your title, that song comes into my mind!!

I pray that this miracle continues in a positive way. You just never know when they "see the light"...

Great news and any time an addict reaches out it truly is a miracle.

Wishing all of you bright paths ahead.

hopin, and prayin and wishin and thinkin...
(a new song for marteen)

thanks for the good wishes - still haven't heard from anyone but am enjoying my easter - the lil guys were so funny - up @ 7 like it was christmas - my eyes need toothpicks - i hope sister is still serious - i'm not sure why she hasn't looked into something similar in IL - i went online and they do have a similar program/housing/support - maybe she wants to be closer to lil guys? - wants to get away from bf? - i don't know - i did find out that her bf was just bailed o ut of jail - i will not worry what tomorrow will bring - but so help me if that gob of flesh bf shows up at my door thinking he's going to pop in for a cup of coffee or something he is sadly mistaken - we'll see...

i will let everyone know if anything happens but for today, just for today, i, and the lil people who have eaten way to much sugar, are/am at peace - well until now when one lil guy stole the other lil guys playmobil pirate - happy easter all my dear friends...
