Under Construction

Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. ~Helen Keller

Like road repair, getting through the rubble of dysfunction and it's affects in our lives can be a true challenge.  It is an adversity that we all face to some degree or another.  Having been both the child of addiction with alcoholism  and the mother of it, I have faced it from both directions of the road.  At times it has been bearable and others it has brought me to my knees literally.   Through out all these times, I have found that writing is a very therapeutic way of both coping and learning to understand the road before me.  Below are most of the posts I have written that specifically have to do with recovery and it's affects.  I hope that you find some inspiration within the lines.

Just A Glimmer,

With just a glimmer of strength you could stop the raging sea.
With just a glimmer of grace you could set the captives free.
With just a glimmer of hope you could clear a stormy sky.
With just a glimmer of light you could make a rainbow in the night.
With just a glimmer of faith you could heal a world or scars.
With just a glimmer of love you could build a bridge between 2 hears.
With just a glimmer of truth you could open up people's eyes throughout the land.
With just a glimmer of compassion the whole world could reach out a helping hand.
With just a glimmer of forgiveness you could turn a war into peace.
with just a glimmer of God all mankind would fall down to his knees.
