Kelly shared (she has about 2 weeks clean and is using Suboxone, she lives with her parents). Kelly basically told her not to ask her daughter details about her recovery because it was her daughter's recovery, not hers. She said to be supportive without nagging or asking a lot of questions and to make sure she was living her own life. I think everyone agreed, I felt proud of her for speaking up and sharing.
Afterward the woman complimented me on my "great kids". (They do look like siblings, right down the the glasses, brown hair and height). I told her I couldn't take credit for Kelly but agreed that she was a great kid (she's 21).
I shared in the meeting too! I talked about what my first Al-Anon mtg. was like and everyone laughed because they could relate to my naivete way back in the early days of this mess. All in all, it was a very enjoyable evening which included GENUINE laughter and smiles coming from my son :) Music to my ears.
It would be wonderful if Kelly and her bf and Keven can all stay on the recovery path together. They have plans to do normal things - movies, swap meet, hiking, the Renaissance Fair, etc. Its dangerous for recovering addicts to hang out together, but I'm not going to worry. I'm just going to watch from a distance and pray.
P.S. I think I was talked into getting a smartphone by the two K's on the drive home. I am paying $100 a month for a dumb phone so why not upgrade, right? Anyone have a phone that they LOVE? Not sure if I want an iPhone, was thinking more of a Droid....
Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
