I'm So Proud of You!

Yesterday I was invited to witness an amazing feat for one of my cousin's ~

It was a surreal experience for me.

it was out of my box-
it was non-judgemental-
it was colorless-
it was different-
it was welcoming-

My cousin was gone-out of society for a few years-I missed her-I'm glad she's back-and I am glad she is getting help!

Yesterday was her ONE YEAR anniversary for being DRUG-FREE & SOBER! I am so proud of her! Words cannot express the grin on her face as she waited her turn to be recognized for her accomplishment. Although the journey will never be over, she is on the road now. She told me things that made sense, she showed maturity, she has a new perspective-a healthier one. She is growing, still has a lot to learn, but she's back-that's all I care about-Did I tell you how proud I was of her? I'm beaming! Griffin and I attended her NA meeting yesterday when she received her ONE YEAR medallion. She left with balloons, cards, gifts, friends, her medallion, but most of all- a sense of being. She was alive, not left to die on the side of the road, and given another chance~

I love you cuz~ I'm so proud of you!!!
I dedicate this day to you.
All the hard work, suffering,
and pain may not be over,

I don't blame you..she is someone to be proud of..It is not easy to overcome anything..drugs/food/etc..
She is to be admired and will be used to set an example to others..Just will see how God will use her..
