The blue cough drop 2/28

Last week was a busy and draining week with the boys I nanny for. It was longer hours and lots of running around.

It’s also challenging because the boys are two young rambunctious and super active beings who I need to keep “safe” first.

They love to beat each other up, wrestle, push each others buttons…set each other up for torment basically.

But they are full of life and I laugh more than ever with these two.

On one of these days I was admittedly in my head a bit…and I was wanting the time to possibly pass a little bit quicker.

I reached into my jacket pocket and I pulled out a blue cough drop. I typically have the red kind so the blue stood out.

I remembered that my friend in recovery Bootsie had handed me a blue cough drop in a meeting about a week back and this was from him.

On the wrapper of the cough drop there was a message – it said:

“You’ve survived tougher.”

This is my higher power working in my life. I laughed and I knew the truth of that statement and I got grateful straight away.

Gods grace and divine timing yet again.

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!

  1. Sometimes after I’ve been sick or had sort of a cough, I like to carry around some terrible menthol tasting cough drops for a treat. Sounds crazy, but I kind of like em.
