Healing- I have an extremly busy life. I dont know where time goes. Most of it is spent on getting things in perfect order. I thank God for my children and the closeness that we share. And for my grand children. Pony has been a perfect Angel. I have gone back to work. My X gets out of prison next month after being locked up for a year this time. One year sober woo hoo!!!!! My daughter got out of state prison in record breaking time and is now in rehab she gets to keep her baby with her. I also thank God for having my two best friends since I was 13. My life has been restored to where it was before this thing we call meth, alcohol, and perscription drug addiction raised its ugly head. With that out of the equation and God in the equation the future looks Bright.

Her baby is due the second week in November. I am taking her and her husband to court for custody of my grandaughter at the end of the month. He got arrested for being under the influence of meth.

Healing- Hi. I think of my family as an obligation not an option. Especially when it comes to those whose lives depend on me which would be the children. When it comes to being responsible I step up to the plate everytime. I hope that my son in law works a rehab program successfully. Lord knows I am no young thing and pray I live to see the day when everyone can take care of them and theirs so my will can be done and I can leave this world in peace.

(((( Healing ))))

Bless yyour heart, how are you and yours? I pray well and in a peaceful state. When we spoke last I forgot to ask if you had heard from your son...I pray you have and that he's ok and still working his program. And NO...I am not all better.. lol.. but getting better everyday, thank God, I still have my days as does everyone. I find the hardest thing to do in recovery is to always pray to let go of my.. . willfullness and ...and always pray for His will to be done, and then pray for the ability to accept His will. So, thats my up-date and I hope you are doing well also.
Love in recovery, Peace4all/grammie

Hey Sis!

I am here and doing well. I think I stopped looking over here because of those 2 long running argumentative threads that were here.

How are things with you? I noticed that I hadn't seen anything from you or Destiny. Have you done anything fun this summer?

I have steered clear of the long-running debates. Hate them. AND...they are against all Scriptural advice for any believer. We are not supposed to engage in "vain disputations." Pointless. Why argue about something which has to be experienced, before it can be believed?

Silliness.

Nice to see a quiet thread on this side.

((((Lil Bro)))) (((Peace4all))))
((((Destiny)))) (((Ma Stron))) and of course everyone else too!

I agree many debates are useless, and have no point, although in some of the debates even if one person says AWWWh I got it, or maybe that's it, it could be helpful for them at a time when they most needed it.. So I try to look at that as maybe God stepping in and using us to say what we say in order to open the eyes of one another... but at the same time as I've stated before it just doesn't make too much sense for anyone to argue a point or to say one is wrong and the other is right... I like discussing with others their point of view and respect that but I don't like name calling or one saying this is the only way.. and everyone else is wrong.

Cary I've been away a couple times this summer and today is my 31 anniversary and figure it out I'm 48 years young... Oh did I get married young!!!! We are going to be going over to the Islands next week for a couple days to get away... Although I have to say I would love to go for a couple weeks... ha ha ha. How have you and yours been doing, I really hope better for you.... Your so sweet and I know you simply want to relax and enjoy life with your partner without his kids always stepping in from what it sounds like... but I think just by knowing you on here your partner knows very well that you are someone that cares and loves him no matter what.

MA Strong - Your oh so right, sometimes those debates become silly and I agree with you whole heartly they do go against all scripture when it comes to telling someone what, why, who, and so on to believe in anything.. it's not our job! Your a kind and intelligent...always enjoy reading what you have to say.

Destiny, I kind of look at it all as I put it all in Gods hands as it is not my will but his... it's how we deal with learning how to let God, and Live without the constant worry. You must have to be one strong YOUNG woman to have had such heart ache.

Peace4all - Well you already know I look at you as such a blessing in my life and I truly feel you've been put there for a reason.. Maybe you think it's because our life's have run so paralel to one anothers in the way of having such similar situations with the people we love in our lifes that are either drug addicts or alcholics!!! Of course it is, I have no doubt. No I haven't heard from my son yet, he has called all of his sisters and brothers, and they all told me that he sounds great, so I just don't know what is up with him. Maybe he feels bad that he left the way he did, and is afraid to call me, but I know from what the kids have all told me that he sounds good, and is working from what he has told them. I miss him though that's for sure.

Lot's of love to you all Healing and Peace

Healing- My life is definatly in Gods hands. It would be a shame to live and die without thinking about our spirtual journey afterwords. Thank goodness I had a lot of strengths when I was younger, but as I get older I have to leave it in the hands of these young ones. They have alot more energy then I do.

((Sis)),

Happy Anniversary! Wow, you did get married young... I am sure that you were in love and nothing else would do.

It sounds like you are still making the best of it and many good things have come of the relationship. Enjoy!

My life as been relatively peaceful for a while. I am not in a relationship so I don't have that to post about. I hit a couple of bumps in dealing with a family member but that is pretty much handled. I am reminded of the humorous saying that "if you can't serve as an example at least you can serve as a warning" That is pretty much what I am...A Warning! Take care all.

Cary (((Bro)))

Yes my husband and I were truly in love, but have to say the love back then was nothing compared to now. It has grown beyond what I ever imagined it could be between two people. I almost have to laugh at how we both were 31 years ago, because we were too young to be married. However,we took life one day at a time, and simply loved each other and ended up actually growing up together you might say in marriage. Which I wouldn't recommend to anyone because looking back on it all now it certainly wasn't easy but the funny thing is we never looked at it as difficult until we looked back on it once our own kids got to the age we were when we got married.... I wasn't even finished physically growing yet. I weighed all of 89 lbs, and was only about 5'2 when we got married. So I guess it wasn't my body that he was attracted to that's for sure.

We were talking about all this a couple weeks ago after one of our kids pulled out old pictures of us when we first got married. I honestly wouldn't change a thing though, we made it, and I know we will always be united spiritually, phsyically and emotionally.

I'm so happy for you,from all I've read in your post here and there you went through some difficult adversity. But it is said walking through the door of adversity can open many doors of opportunty. I beleve that in many ways too, as we become stronger, and are able to step away from old ways are eyes are open to knowing we deserve the best.

Peace to you, Healing and Peace

(((Good Morning ALL)))

What a very nice positive thread you have started Healing...it is so enjoyable to read others and how they are doing. I think this is a great way to check in with others and catch up from time to time. You also know my dear Healing, that I too feel we were meant to meet here and share our journies in life, altho we are many years apart. Keep up the positive thoughts on your son, I am sure he is fine. Congrats on your anniversary and I hope you and hubby have a wonderful time in the islands. Love..
Your friend in recovery, peace/grammie

(((Grammie))))

I was actually reading some of the post the day I started this thread thinking you know you we all get better in time, and how nice it was to read how some posters are doing. I mean not so sad all the time, not that they all were all the time but you know it just seemed like everyone has been up instead of so down. So just posted what I thought, I suppose, and saying hello to everyone.

I still haven't heard from my son, but like I said he has contacted his brothers and sisters, so that is good. I have to put our trip on hold because lately I've been feeling a lot of pain in one of my hip joints, I had gone to an orthopedic for it a couple years ago and he said it was my back causing the hip pain so I just figured ok it will let up or go away because I certainly never felt any discomfort in my back. Then about two and half weeks ago my hip started to hurt with intense pain so the I went to an orthopedic last week again and he did an x-ray and said that I have severe hip dysplasia in it. Which most likely has been causing it to sublux and that then caused a tear in the labrum. It really hurts and I'm not too sure what they do about it at all, as I've never even heard of it developing in adults before.. Dogs yes, but people never... only like when some babies are born they have it in both hips. Go figure, even working in the medical field I've never seen it or heard of it.

I'm hoping that the pain lets up soon, so we can reschedule our trip very soon. Will talk to you on the online meeting hopefully soon, Healing and Peace

I agree with Cary, Healing and Peace. What you wrote about you and your husband is "very cool". It's nice to know that sometimes it all does work out.

Healing- I agree that is an unusual diagnoses. You will have to keep us informed. How in the heck does that happen. I know with canines it is inherited and they can even test to see if certain breeds carry that gene. Does it affect your ability to ride? How is your sons nose and his MED school?

(((Mary))) (((Bro))) (((Destiny)))

Thanks you all, I suppose it it cool... when I think about it. Lucky too!!!!

Destiny, that's what I thought too, and couldn't believe it when I saw the x-ray if I didn't see it myself I wouldn't have believed it. I have no idea how it happens, or have for that matter ever heard of it before with anyone. Yes it hurts when I ride the horses and the get ski's but I never really thought about it as anything because I just figured it was me getting "Younger" lol... no really I just didn't really think too much of it until the pain became intense about a month ago now. Maybe it's in my gene, and my breed... lol

My son's nose has healed well, it looks a tiny bit crooked but unless someone knows him well they would probably never even notice it. He is ready to go back in another week. He is stressing over it, and thinks his courses are getting more difficult but I keep telling him just don't think ahead as much and concentrate only on the ones you have to take for now.

Healing and Peace- Medical school is pretty intense. I will leave it to the young and strong. I sent pony to pasture, now my best friend from high school is going to buy her from me. I am happy to know where she will be and can ride if I visit. I do worry about horse accidents. Dont need any more problems at my age.
