I got to give him his quilt, and I got about six hugs! Hmmmm, I think he likes it!
He asked about DD2, and I was able to pass along her love and birthday wishes for him. He and I both hope she'll be back in that room one day, because in the walls of NA, there are answers and there is hope. She's done it before and almost got two years! She can do it again. It's up to her. I wish I could do it for her. But I can't. (I'm mindful of those 3 C's!)
Tonight was a good night. I was able to speak with a mom who was celebrating 7 years tonight.... with her daughter with her (who was celebrating a year!) and a son who is "out there doing more research!" Yeah, I could definitely empathize with her. She spoke a few words when she took her chip and I could hear so much of my own emotions in her words. But all in all, a good night - so filled with hope and optimism and celebration!
