“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” ~Lao Tzu
Today we took my eldest to tour the residential treatment facility he is next in line to attend.
I was afforded the first opportunity since the Christmas holidays to enjoy seeing my youngest gingers playing and walking with their eldest brother. The last week of December is when he was here last.
The pain has been agonizing to watch him during his struggle with substance abuse.
Every day I feel there is a hole in the very fibres of my essence.
Most days…I cry.
It was a really, really great day.
We are truly moving forward, him and I.
My heart hurts just a little less than it did yesterday…
