DON’T BE IN A RUSH: RECOVERY TAKES TIME

Uncle Jeff and Niece Iysa making s’mores

An Italian friend sent me a poem written by the Uruguayan poet, Mario Benedetti. A young man in recovery told her that he had to hurry to finish the program, to find a job and a house. She shared this poem with him as a way of saying that recovery takes time: time to start to live again, time to reestablish connections with family and society, time to change old habits and to start new ones. Recovery is the time to learn how to live in abstinence.

How do I let you know?

How do I let you know that there is always time?…

That no one sets rules, but life …

That wounds heal …

That it never hurts to be thankful …

That nobody wants to be alone …

That to receive we must also know how to ask …

That one feels with the body and mind …

That it costs to be sensitive and not get hurt …

That it would be better to build bridges

That on them we reach the other side and also come back …

How do I let you know that no one set rules, but life? 

Today’s Promise to consider: For both the persons in recovery and their families, recovery takes time. Wounds heal, but the process takes time. New memories are made, but they take time. We may all be in a rush to start a new life together, but time can heal, and time takes time.

purpose to present the stone in one of the simplest ways you may.
That you must be very artistic to sell the piece.

It’s the statues, or moai, that are the actual draw.

However if you utilize your blog site simply to disperse your
sales messages, you could battle to locate readers.

Look at the product photographs. Terribly developed images that present the products badly sometimes means a low high quality piece of jewelry.

Howdy, I do believe your website could possibly be having browser compatibility issues.
Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping
issues.I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic blog!
