I went to a meeting tonight. I've been scared to go...not sure why really. I finally decided that if my DH was strong enough to go to AA then I need to be strong enough to go to Al-Anon and learn how to heal myself. What I learned tonight was that I could relate to something everyone shared tonight so I am not alone. I also learned that DH isn't keeping me out of his life right now but rather focusing on his sobriety which will always come first in his life if he is going to stay sober and I need to accept that. I learned that this is going to be a much longer road than I realized.

Hope~Courage~Faith~Strength!!

There is a phrase in AA....we are trudging the road to happy destiny.


Focus on the happy destiny and not the trudging part!

Yes it will be!!! But, if you work your own program it will be more wonderful then you ever imagined it to be.

In Love and peace,
