He ain't heavy, he's my Brother.....

The best times of all with my Family, were spent talking to my Brother David, He's been clean now almost 2 years.....
He told me of a time when he was still new in recovery and how he got up early one morning to questions to himself if he was doing the right thing and if he could make it in recovery and if the steps he was taking were the right ones.
He said he got up at 6 in the morning one day, a very rare happening for him, he made his coffee and opened the blinds, all of this was new to him, as an addict he never saw daylight much less dawn. He went out on his back porch, the sun was just coming through the trees the light was brilliant. he stood there with so much racing around in his head. He was new to the sounds and sights of morning and he had many questions. He started taking to God, He was asking for proof that this was the right thing,for strength for understanding and for answers. At that very second he witnessed the incredible sun beaming through the trees in the most brilliant light show he had ever witnessed, he knew at that very moment, God was showing him his light and telling him that he was in the right place at the right time. He's never looked back he says and has been in Narcotics Anonymous ever since. He has the best outlook on life and I am so proud of his accomplishments. If you say that to him he becomes embarrassed, he says He never likes the words people use towards him for something he should have done years ago. David is bright and has so much to offer to others in the same place he once had been. For the first time in 20 years I actually enjoyed being around him. I didn't have to hide my purse, I didn't have to count my pills I knew and know he is better.
After returning home I have this wonderful feeling of amazement that my Brother is OK and life is good for him. He is finally the beautiful spirit we once knew......
