Addiction therapies updated

Today is Sunday; I’m recovering from the flu or seasonal allergies. No need to see a doctor. However, I am not sleeping well. Having trouble getting a niece out of mind. About ten years ago, she influenced two very young loved ones. Probably believes my reaction is mute. If anything makes sense, what she allowed is repulsive. In fear of exposure, prison, dying, she took her baby and ran off. Disgusted, blaming anyone else will never make amends.

Three years ago, my mother discretely revealed the mystery. Silence filled the air. My child had kept this a secret while I was wondering “where did I go wrong”. Time heals. Lessons learned.

Forgiving, of course. Otherwise, I’ll be making my own life miserable by holding a grudge. We all have the right to remain hopeless. Yet, with all due respect, when forgiveness is mentioned, may we all keep moving onward: forgiving one another.

The guilt trip:
These emotions have been tucked away for over 10 years. Yet, pitching a guilt trip is an awful way to deal with it. Of course I care about my niece. I want to hear good reports about her existence. I want to hear that she has found better influences instead of stepping backwards. That’s all folks!

      There are mistakes that are best left in history and learned from. Move forward with better intent!

    If child protective services of N.C. knew any of this, perhaps , they could have informed the parents. Instead, everything was hush, hush about it. Shut up, sit down, be quiet is the response I gathered. Eventually, the child informed her mom; but the mom was still sorting through all the scapegoated deception. The words had to come from a reliable source and even then, an unspoken warning:

    “Loose lips sink ships.” Wicked people will receive rewards for turning away from wickedness. Even the heathen knows right from wrong. Harm nobody. Even our thoughts are our in the open before the throne of grace. Greater joy is in Heaven over one sinner with a repentant heart.

    There is a pure and perfect love; evil cannot pretend to be welcome there.
    Its walls have stealthy barriers; only the pure in spirit can find this place
    …and cherish the peace within. [SSS, 2018]

    May we all CHIME IN!
