Notice the "we". Last evening Mark and I went to see the movie Crazy Heart where Jeff Bridges plays an alcoholic musician who recovers. It was chilling for both of us to see and after the movie mark asked about this blog. He even said he might start writing in it again....wouldn't that be cool!
We have struggled as a couple in recovery and now that Mark is 3 years sober he is in a different place. We started a therapy called EFT today and have a great male therapist. We think this will be good for us and I am happy that Mark really wants to be a good husband (he has a lot to make up for). There is hope for our relationship and we are learning new ways to communicate.
Lot's of personal growth for me which I will write about another time. SO I hope we have not lost all our readers, I hope that Mark starts writing regularly, and I hope that year three of recovery for him is also a wonderful year for this family in recovery.
Our child is doing great in school good grades, friends, and generally happy...the dog is happy...financially we are still struggling but we are rebuilding...This year should be rebirth in many ways.
Thought in closing. Our therapist said that Mark might try to use his AA principles and program and apply them outside of the program and to our marriage. Great idea, and glad it came from someone other than me...Time will tell.
