60 days

D went to his meeting tonight to get his 60 day chip,...with a lot of happiness about doing so. He's done more than 60 meetings in those 60 days.....a lot more than 60, and that's all the difference in his thinking and staying clean, along with being ready and having his sponsor, who's been such a Godsend. Even though it's for court and we all have our big apprehensions about that day, we're looking forward to seeing him on Feb. 23rd, when he comes back here for the preliminary hearing on the 25th.

A lot has happened in the past 60 days, and for once, it's mostly all good. He was at work today (yes, the new job, yaay) and came outside and found his bike stolen, so that wasn't good. The lock was cut. : ( He should get his first paycheck very soon, so that will go toward a new bike, and now he'll bring any bike he gets into the store and put it into the back room. I was thinking....why didn't he do that in the first place, but kept my mouth shut on that one. In the meantime, he'll (hopefully) get rides for work from people in the house where he lives. But the bottom line today, for now, is that 60 days clean is a very good thing, and a good start to his future. I continue to have hope that his recovery will also continue. Praying for all of our addicts.


  1. It is so great to hear how well he is doing. Hopefully, Blake will follow! We both have court on the 25th so hopefully it will be great news for both of them. Your family is in my prayers.

  2. I am so happy for you. Let's pray that he stays on the right path. These kids have so much to live for!

  3. thanks to you both for commenting....yes...we're very hopeful. Court looms,..and that's a huge concern, but he is doing soo well, and 1 yr. ago today,there were cops on my front porch and he was arrested. After that he did well, and then, since June...went downhill terribly, until mid December. A lot has happened in this last year,...but we are very thankful for how he's doing now.
