15 years ago today, I got married. I loved this man. I wasn’t a perfect person or wife, but I took the vows seriously. The saddest part is that other people tried to destroy it and us at the same time. I hope you’re well and going to meetings. For old time’s sake: Happy Anniversary. Today I woke up in a homeless shelter. No family, no husband, no dogs or cats. Sad. But I did start the day with an AA meeting, so the day started right. Yesterday I felt isolated. Now I know why. My oldest daughter Tara’s birthday is April 22nd. She’s been deceased for over six years. I joined a ministry at Arch Street to help deal with the pain. No parent wants to join this ministry. But we all understand one another. Love your children and grandchildren.
