  1. Oomph. “Diseases, disasters and broken children are random sparks that light future fires.” I’ll come back to read this again when I stop crying. Powerful story.

    1. Oh I will share this comment with Sandy, I think she’ll appreciate how it moved you. Although I’m sorry it made you cry!! But I know, it’s so powerful and raw!!!! 😢🔥❤️‍🩹

  2. First, I love your Aunt Sandy’s art work! Second, though I was not raised by or really drawn to addicts of any kind, generally, little did I know that what would ultimately break up my marriage was my spouse’s relapse into alcoholism. If I wanted to, I could look back at his behaviors before he went into rehab early in our marriage. Since I don’t, I’ll just say that I also found some of the thoughts and sayings I found through Al Anon gave me a lot of comfort when I finally realized I couldn’t help him before I then gave up on trying to get him to help himself.

    1. Thank you for sharing and I’m sorry about your marriage. Alcoholism is so painful and so many people are touched by the disease. Which is why I appreciate you sharing and why Sandy’s story is so powerful. Thank you so much for reading and commenting!
