I made this award for a few bloggers I have been following. I know there are more out there deserving of this, so if you wish you may pay this forward to anyone you know who has been able to persevere through the rough times and see the hope on the other side by copying the award on your blog and then doing as I did with the links,and be sure to let the winners know they have an award.
The following bloggers are an exceptional bunch of people in the fact that they have addicts for children. I truly am grateful to be able to see addiction from my parents point of view. I never had this perspective before and there is a lot of heartache when I read, but as I continue to follow I also see Hope, and that is where the magic is, if you don't believe me just check out the few I have listed below. And again Thank You to All you very Special Parents of Addicts, you are a blessing that all too often go unappreciated and i wanted to take this chance to say Thank you.
The first award goes to Mom and Dad of "An Addict in our Son's Bedroom". I started following this blog a while ago and I am so very grateful that I do. When reading this blog i get the perspective of addiction from my mother and fathers viewpoint. I understand completely what I am going through and what other addicts feel, it is such an honor and a privilege to see Mom and Dad's point of view.
The Second goes to Lou of "Subdural Flow". Lou is a wonderful mother who has such a beautiful way of sharing her life as she watches on the sidelines the trials of her addict. I am truly blessed and honored to be a part of Lou's blogging world.
The third award goes to Lisa of "Wearing my Heart on My Sleeve". Lisa has such a beautiful sense of humor as she blogs about her life with Teens!! And she also shares about the wonderful support she has to get through these hard times. Her blog is truly a wonderful resource if you are looking for solutions.
The next award is for Laura, of "Enabling Love". Laura is a wonderful mother and grandmother who shows me that you do not need to let the chaos of your addict make your life miserable. Thank you Laura for having such a positive outlook on life.
The next award goes to "mother of a Drug Addict". "Mom" is probably one of the most toughest women I read about. She is honest and loving and very opinionated. I truly appreciate everything "mom" has to say. I often wonder if my own mother were like her, would I have gotten clean sooner. Thank you "Mom" for the honesty and courage you put fourth in your blog it is an honor to read.
As you may have seen a theme here, I am dedicating this blog to the parents of addicts. Those very special people who are able to love us when we cannot love ourselves. Thank you for all that you do, I just wanted to take the time to tell you guys you are important and loved, just in case you hadn't heard it in a while.
I hope this does not offend any one out there going through such turmoil, this is only an attempt from one addict to say thank you for everything. Today's thought; "If you see failure as a monster stalking you, or one that has already ruined your life, take another look. That monster can become a benevolent teacher, opening your mind to successes you cannot now imagine."
