I’ve HOPEFULLY Broken The Chain ♥️
Last night was super special for me for obvious reasons…getting dressed up as a family, spending time with friends and watching the kiddos trick-or-treat.
I couldn’t help but remember last year, as we were driving around on our can-am last night, the same way we did last year through the neighborhood, letting Harrison and his buddies jump off and run up to each house to get candy. So fun.
Except Last Halloween as we drove around through the neighborhood I had an entire bottle of champagne in my Yeti Tumbler…yes in case you didn’t know an entire bottle of champagne fits in one of those tumblers. 🤦🏼♀️
I cringe thinking back of all of the times I’ve numbed my feelings with alcohol. The times I thought it was necessary to drink.
It’s never necessary. 😢
But Danny and I have broken the chain of addiction that has run in our family. We’ve chosen a different path. I’m so grateful that Harrison will eventually forget that we ever drank anything that he couldn’t share with us. I’m determined to show him that in a world where alcohol, a group one carcinogen, is not a necessity for life.
I’m not naive that he will be exposed to alcohol, even try it eventually, but I pray he never walks the path I did. With my whole heart I pray that he uses my hindsight as his foresight in the future.
All we can do is be the example.
Kids do what we do, not what we say to do.
