((((((((Healing))))))))

Hi sweetie, how are you and yours..I pray well. Not sure why i havent posted here in so long..but if i had to guess, its cause i didnt see you here..LOL. I read your post on the other side (alanon/naranon) thread..and...I am so sorry that life and your sister are testing you once more..or still. You show great strength in saying no to sis and that dumb cop, he really has been trained better than that, i would think. But you perservered and held onto your health boundry and i am so pleased to hear that...it seems that the alcoholic's/addicts in our lives just dont want to get help for themselves and untill they hit their bottom's i guess they never will. My family is well and i guess doing the best they can..lol..my oldest son who i came to alanon for, has 2 years clean & sober next week and thats a wonderful blessing to both he and I. My second oldest son who i have always believed did drugs also, has detoxed himself and moved back in with the mother of his 2 children. However no meetings and they have never got along, so we will just sit back and see what God has planned for that little family. My daughter who i already shared with you about our trying to re-build our relationship....well, i havent heard from her..lol..guess it was more my big idea not hers...when she's ready i guess..lol..hope she doesnt wait till its too late.teehee.
Ok let's see anything else, Bet you wish you never asked how i was lol..
Actually, I am great and still a grateful Al-Anon member still going to most morning meetings altho i have missed some as of late..seems like we stay up later in summer-time and then sleep later...but we are just living life out here in the desert. Tell me how the rest of your family are, your parents, your son, your daughter.what's she doing this summer after her graduation ? and how is your nephew and that little baby doing? AND..most importantly How are you and your hubby doing???? I have missed you and your words here so fill me in if you care to. I care and think of you often...Boy i sure do talk alot Hahahaha......
Love in recovery, Peace4all/ grammie

Glad to hear your doing ok besides the whether... It is hot out there!

So you haven't heard from your daughter, I'm sorry to hear that I know it must be difficult at times... and I know you were hoping that you two could start anew. When she is ready I guess she will open up, but it's ashame because she is missing out on having a wonderful mother/daughter relationship. I suppose all you can really do is pray that someday she will come around, and hope that it isn't too late but keep playing basket ball it helps keep you young!

That's too bad about your 2nd son, I hope he can find some happiness in his life with the mother of his 2 kids.. we really never know what God has in store for ourselves or our family.

I'm greatful for Al-Anon too, I'll tell you the meetings really do help keep me grounded... I'm glad you filled me in on what's been going on... love hearing from you! The daughter that just finnished school is trying to get an intership with the FBI, will see how that goes... I'm not sure why she wants this so bad, but I will stand behind her decission whatever profession it is.. but a young woman as a narcotics agent is a little scary when I think about it too much... and I'm not sure how to say this but she can really be a little ditsy at times.. in a good way.. but her a with a gun.. Yike's! I'll worn you to take cover if she ever ends up working in your area of the Country!

My son is doing well, it's been since Oct now. Yippie for him, and I'm proud of him for working on his recovery.

Nephew is still in the rehab and looking forward to seeing his daughter...His last day is July 3rd, the girlfriend and the mother of the baby has not complied with the State (DCF) so not sure how well that will go over when he is able to take the baby and she won't be able to.. She met someone in the detox the first week she was in there and left with some guy she met there that same week, and is now living with him at a halfway house.. but since she hasn't completed the suggested treatment - 60 days in residential treatment based on the evaluation the state requested at a drug treatment she will not be able to get the baby...kind of sad and very foolish on her part but maybe she just isn't ready.

As far as my sister goes, and her trying to pull me back into her problems, it won't happen, and won't allow it... I need my PEACE! She is the same ol, same ol, always trying to pull someone into her games.

My Mom and Dad are doing well, my mother has quit answering my sisters calls, so that helps her a lot. I've invited her a few times to come to an Al-Anon meeting with me but she always declines saying she knows it helped her a lot when she went to the couple but she doesn't want to go now. I kind of feel that she is so tired of all of it, that she may feel there's no use. I will keep inviting her, and I do let her know it is about her recovery and will give her more strength but I don't want to push her into it at all. She does keep herself very busy so that's good in a way that she isn't sitting around sad about my sister all the time like she once did.

My father cracks me up, they went away for a mini 4 day vacation so this morning he called me and left a message that he was sitting there opening all the father's day gifts I had sent to him... I didn't send anything, I called yesterday and wished him a Happy Father's day when they were still out of town, and told him that we will go out to dinner next weekend. He loves to give me a hard time, but he is always just joking around!!!

All and all, I'm doing well, have days when I think it's time to retire but I keep working, and keep telling myself soon... LOL

Maybe if I don't have to work until later on Thursday I will talk to you on the online morning meeting.

Peace to you (((Grammie)))) how can that be your younger then my mother, and I'm the same age as your daughter! Grammie just doesn't sound right. But your a cool GRAMMIE that's for sure!

Peace to you, and talk to you soon, Love ya lot's Healing and peace
