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.

  6. Hi Carrie...I love the picture here and your words. What struck me too was your words at the top "This blog bears the burden of all the words never spoken." It took me so long to have my voice that this one phrase really stood out for me. Glad through this blog, you're having your voice, speaking your heart and your heart is so amazingly beautiful. Hugs Carrie and wishes for a beautiful weekend.
