I woke up this morning, with no intention of writing. But as I was doing my morning scroll of Facebook, I realized something. We are an incredibly special group of moms, united by addiction, into a sisterhood of a lifelong bond.
Some of us have lost loved ones.
Some of us have loved ones still struggling.
Some of us have sons and daughters currently in prison.
Some of us have been blessed to have our children in recovery.
THESE are the women are who fearless.
THESE are the women who have busted down drug dealer’s doors to pull their daughter out.
THESE are the women who have given their son CPR, in a frantic moment of saving their life.
THESE are the women who don’t sleep at night, but yet go to work every day, with fear in their stomachs and a fake smile on their face.
THESE are the women who have been spit on, screamed at, stolen from, but yet love their child even more, as they know it’s the addiction doing these horrible things.
THESE are the women who have seen and experienced things that will haunt them in their dreams for a lifetime.
THESE are the women who do better research than the FBI.
THESE are the women who uplift each other in prayer and strength with complete strangers.
THESE are the women who shed tears for total strangers and celebrate little victories.
I write this with tears…tears of love, sadness and admiration. These women are the most beautiful women I have ever been connected with. I have formed incredible relationships and most I have never met.
Happy Mother’s Day to these women, my sisters, I love you all.
