my children are all grown and have lives of their own to live today. i keep in contact with each of my children and offer them love always. i do have a significant other and we work toward betterin our relationship through communication. she aint like me in that im an alcoholic and practice a program of recovery, but i do involve her in my recovery. the ravelment i used to cause in my family no longer exists because of recovery. recoverys effects on me are felt by all members of my family. today, it is a need by me that i practice a spiritual lifestyle and each one in my family gets to feel the results of that. though i may have gotten into recovery to change myself, my family are the ones that deserved the change ive discovered within. livin family obligations today are made much easier for me because i am able to enmesh spiritual principles in my obligations to my family. sharin with my family the gifts i have received from the relationship i have built with my HP helps to rebuild the relationship i destroyed with my family through the days of doin my dirt. sharin the peace of mind that only my HP can give me in the midst of a restless world, surrounded by trouble, and difficulty, with grace, dignity, and integrity, is an effort made by me to show my family the love they deserve from me. while out doin my dirt, i wasted too much time, time that my family needed from me. today i spend quality time enjoyin life with them when possible. i can share with my family the pain i feel today as a part of my own beauty, instead of keepin it from them, usin their input to help me live through personal struggles. as i continue to develop spiritually, the relationship with my family improves. remainin teachable, with ears open, actively listenin to my familys needs, i get to fulfill them as needed, somethin i could never do while out doin my dirt. keepin my family as a priority under God and recovery, even as i experience bumps on the journey, big bumps, small ones, irritatin, frustratin, even painful, i work my way past everyone, involvin my family in my spiritual progress. whatever way my life unfolds, i embrace it, utilize it, and without complaint, regret, or hesitation, keep goin. life is as it is, and it is mine to live with positive purpose with my family. with a spiritual life i get to enjoy my family and the obligations i have toward them today. 1 day @ a time...
