About Magnolia Beginnings
Just when you think you have it all down it changes again or...
“Reshaping life! People who can say that have never understood a thing about life—they have never felt its breath, its heartbeat—however much they have seen or done. They look on it as a lump of raw material that needs to be processed by them, to be ennobled by their touch. But life is never a material, a substance to be molded. If you want to know, life is the principle of self-renewal, it is constantly renewing and remaking and changing and transfiguring itself, it is infinitely beyond your or my obtuse theories about it.”
― Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

I just finished reading “If You Love Me”. Thank you for your honesty! I‘m in year seven of living life loving two children suffering with substance abuse disorder. I have encountered virtually every situation you described and felt all of the same emotions.
When I’m asked how my children are doing, I always pause unsure of how to respond. Sometimes it’s “I’m cautiously optimistic” that this time treatment will be successful. Other times I respond saying “today is a good day and I remain hopeful”. Then there are days that I’m sure the knock on my door will be a police officer delivering the news that my son or daughter has died.
Today is a good day, and I remain hopeful.
