September 18th, Intervention success...
Earlier this week I wrote about an upcoming intervention that was weighing heavily in my thoughts and prayers, distracting me and my focus. I am so happy to know that it was successful, in that the individual was checked in yesterday for much needed detoxing. The spouse, a heavy weight lifted! But the kids involved sad, as the departure was not nice.
I get it. I shared, I am still sad when I think back to the parts, I can remember, of the intervention we had with my mom. It was successful, she stayed sober (that we know) for the next 27 years and what a difference it made! My parents stayed married, which was in question, and they seemed happier. My kids only knew a sober grandma growing up, never having to witness what I did in my childhood. Our many family get togethers and holidays, no longer filled with the preoccupation and anxiety of what if or more so like, how long until. Worth it, I say it was, but will always be looking for the better way. As anyone knows the intervention is a small, first step, on the long path all face ahead.
Sincerest well wishes for the journey – may it bring possibilities for future.
Hmmm, treatment begins…day 65!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
