When Life Happens
When I was court-ordered into AA, my mom was initially embarrassed that her daughter was an alcoholic. As I stayed sober and she saw how the program was able to work in my life, she began to understand and became my biggest supporter. Over time, she met my “new” friends and began to understand my “new lifestyle.” At my wedding, I recall how she glowed with pride and love and was so happy for the sober life I was now living. Life went on for both of us.
