I haven't posted this in ages because, well, it's a vanity thing. It makes me want to head for the nearest plastic surgeon. LOL. But this is who I am, and this is my heart. Addiction can happen in any family, but there is help, and there is hope. I want to scream from the rooftops that recovery is possible, not just for our children, but for ourselves as well. ‪#‎AVeryFineHouse‬ ‪#‎addiction‬ ‪#‎recovery‬

I'm honored Sandy Swenson has included "A Very Fine House" on her short lists of books that have helped her on her journey as the mother of an addict. Sandy is one of the great voices out there today, offering courage and wisdom to families. Her book, "The Joey Song," encourages us that we can survive, even flourish, while a loved one's life hangs in abeyance. Her writing is a gift and I can hardly wait for her new release this fall, "Where Love and Addiction Meet." Rock on, Sandy!

Not all of us on this journey share the same thoughts and beliefs. It's okay.
