Jail again. . .

Don't you just hate it when you know. . .

I have had that "feeling" - that little something in the pit of your stomach that something isn't just right with my daughter - the phone conversations were weird, sporatic, not making sense, the drastic weight loss, the "new" friends, blah, blah, blah. . .

I have walked this road with her for over 17 years - I know when it's not good, I see it, I feel it, I hear it . . .

Then she disappears, no contact, no returned phone calls, no returned text messages, no post on FB -

yes then you know it in your gut, you just have to wait until someone confirms it - today someone let me know she's in jail again - doesn't really matter all the details - this is the 5th or 6th time - right now I really can't remember -

All I can remember is my program of recovery - detachment with love; no enabling - because I have proven over and over again - enabling DOESN'T help her or me

Today I decided I would mail her a letter to the jail - just to tell her I love her and I'm praying for her - I know i have said it a million times - but I need to say it again ~ I have always told my girls - I may not agree with your choices or actions, but there is never anything you can do that will make me NOT love you.

I need to remind her of that . . .for both our sakes.

So my friends, if you have a moment - let us join our hearts and minds in thoughts and prayers (if you choose) for our addict loved ones that still suffer and for their parents, spouses, and children ~ this disease tries to take us all!

This is not an easy road for either of us ~

PINK HUGS & prayers for God's very best for us all
Rita

Awe Rita, your recovery is shining today ( and always) I will certainly join you in a prayer for all of our loved ones, and a special one for you and your family.

Thinking of you both and saying a prayer. It takes courage to accept, let go, and still love.
I commend you for that courage.

You are an inspiration to all, your recovery is your benchmark.

I am so very sorry that you are having to once again navigate your boat through rough waters.

Rita, Thank you for your post. It was what I needed to read. My daughter is once again in jail. Same thing... feeling something was up... finding out she was in. And today tried to remember how many times now, and yah know, I just didn't want to sit down and try and count. Now is when I sit and write her that letter. And try and get a visitation. It sucks. I hope she has her awakening moment soon.

Add my prayers too, Rita, for your daughter, my son and for all our addicts who still suffer.

I believe that God loves all His children, including his addicted ones, and I believe God hears our prayers and can do for them what we cannot.

Hugs

OH Rita, I'm sorry to hear this. I have said many times "this mom stuff is NOT for weenies!"

And what we know today is this: the greatest gift we can give our children is the dignity to make their own choices and experience the joy of their own consequences.

Mom hugs
