Better

Somehow the rain makes things seem a little better.

I'm still hopeful the addict in my life will recover.  It is hard beyond words on everyone around them, no matter how people try to detach from the alcoholic or addict's shenanigans.

The trick, albeit a sad one, is to hold the person struggling with addiction in your heart, encourage and support them when they try to do the right thing, and, hard as it is, not let your own life slip away.  I have not written nor had a single thought of much worth in the last week.

I do have every hope, as always.
