Yesterday I spent a few hours with friends from Celebrate Recovery. We had a picnic at a flower farm.
What a beautiful, special, blessed day it was.
Many of us posted pics and thoughts about how nice this time together was especially since we had not been together in person since mid-March.
Recovery friends are referred to as Forever Family. Reflecting on yesterday, forever family is the perfect way to describe way to identify these people to me.
I created an photo album online titled ‘This is CR’ The description says. Celebrate Recovery has changed my life and has taught me how to walk along side others with love. It’s not just a meeting once a week, it’s how I do life and how I do life with others.
I didn’t realize how much I really missed being with my CR family in person for the last few months until seeing so many of them yesterday.
Looking back, some of my favorite days were ones with my Forever Family. Painting, a birthday party, axe throwing and a picnic at a flower farm to name a few.
It’s not just a meeting once a week. It’s real relationships. People who you want to spend time with. People you admire. People who know your junk and love you anyway. People I know their junk and don’t judge but love them for who they are today.
It’s not just a meeting once a week. It’s a way of living life with others in a healthy way.
Stay on this ride with me, the best is yet to be.
My journey to serenity continues…
