Good afternoon! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Today, I saw this verse and it stopped me in my tracks. I had nothing more to say but Amen. There are some days when Laney comes home from school and she has had a rough day and all I can do is listen to her and talk to her and hug her. I can't take away her pain. I can't make kids be nice. I won't be able to make the boys not break her heart. Or stop best friends from back stabbing her. Same for Oli, girls will break his heart. All I can do is pray. I can talk with them, listen to them, hug them and love them. I can share with them my experiences and how I dealt with them. I wrote a lot. That was my way of getting things out. I don't know if they will do that, but I can offer that option. But I will pray, I know I will do that. I know my parents did. There are a lot of things I cannot do alone. That I must put my trust in Him for. To protect myself on a daily basis as well, not only my children but myself. I need protection...physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and in every way. That's all I got for today! Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
