Focusing On The Good

My nephew’s birthday was technically yesterday, and yes, in those moments I miss back home. Him and I had a nice little text chat and I firmly believe he knows how much auntie loves and misses him. I’m glad he is to an age that we can communicate even though my sister and I don’t. He gets to see my little girl and spend quality time with her, I’m grateful for this. I miss her immensely, and even though sobriety has brought me many bountiful blessings, I can’t help but feel the ache in my chest daily with the absence of my child. I can only continue being present, a good wife, employee, friend, and many other things including sober. Somehow the weight and obsession has been so gracefully lifted and for this blessing I cannot be thankful enough.

1.) Patience

2.) Feelings; good and bad I still feel them to the core

3.) Nuggles

4.) Frozen coffee

5.) A warm bed

6.) A rewarding job

7.) Unconditional love

8.) Elise Corinne 💗💗

9.) My wife 💕

10.) My family and the love they have for my child

Praying for everyone in my life isn’t always easy, but I know it’s what I am supposed to do. I will continue striving to be the best version of self and only hope God’s plan is to reunite my daughter and I. However that may look.

Yours truly,


Anna
