What It Takes

Michelle is an amazing blogger and mother. In this post she shares the story of her son’s drug addiction and how she did everything possible to help him fight it. I am so amazed and touched by her complete love for her son. Whether he was asleep on the couch, or laying down right after doing drugs, she learned to tell the often small differences in his behavior, and no matter what she loved and helped him. I am weeping as I read her post, thankful that she shows it is possible to love your child no matter what. I fought a drug addiction, on my own for over 6 years, and when I walked away from it I did it all alone. My family knew what I was doing, but no one once stopped to express concern, options for help, or simply love no matter how many stupid decisions I had made. Thank you Michelle, for sharing this, and showing a better way to handle addictions our friends or family are struggling through.

The SisterWives

I have a propensity for following bloggers who make me think and feel as much as they make me laugh. This isn’t an easy combo, as most of you know. It takes a willingness to be vulnerable, the courage to be honest, and the ability to make typed words drip with sarcasm. It’s a delicate trifecta that not everyone can pull off, which is why I jumped at the chance to introduce our guest writer today. She happens to have perfected this trifecta. In fact, it comes so naturally to her I suspect she invented it. Please welcome Michelle, whose blog – Rubber Shoes In Hell – is the cool place to be. Her writing has earned our respect and admiration, and we’re incredibly honored to have her words here. In fact, we are featuring her all week. Be sure to check back Thursday for another powerful post by Michelle.  –Beth
