Good one God! 1/24

I am not sure if I can convey what happened with words but I most certainly will try.

I declared in my previous post that I was opening myself up to less fear and more fun. More of life. I was leaving the nest to test my wings a bit. I asked for more laughter, more hugs more friends more more more….and well…I got it.

I ended up at a store. One I have not been to in over 3 years. I almost left that store several times because I had to pee and the bathrooms were closed. Also I had a cart full of clothes to try on and their dressing rooms were also closed. But something told me to suck it up, pick out what you know will fit and go to the check out.

Everyone is masked up, but I heard a woman’s voice that I recognized. This woman is a friend of mine in recovery. She has been in recovery since I walked through the doors to one of my first meetings. The first time I saw her she was wearing a huge gold heart around her neck.

This woman helped me and my son during my first sober Christmas. Her daughter Alex, and my son Tyler went and saw Santa together. Her and Alex would come to our pool in the summer and swim. She helped me hang pictures on my walls and move furniture around my house. (things I was not allowed to do when I was married due to a controlling x-husband)

A little over 2 years ago tragically and suddenly my friends daughter Alex died. With god’s grace my friend has remained sober through this nightmare.

After hugging in the store…we went for coffee.

She told me that she had been talking with her daughters spirit that morning and she asked her daughter “Alex who are you bringing me to see at the store today?”

It was me.

We laughed, we cried, we hugged. We lived some more life on this earth together.

Just as god wanted it to be.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!
