>Path to recovery?


I met and spoke with one of my fellow painters today who offered me support and strength and shared her experience which is similar and perhaps even more courageous than what I’ve had to do.  The outcome was a very good one in her case and I really hope it is in ours as well.  Time will tell.

Without going into too much detail, I will say I attended my first support group meeting tonight.  Alone.  But through that door, the healing energy was palpable.  I felt immediate relief and in sharing readings from the materials they use, I recognized a home for my pain and troubles.  And yes, I did share my story briefly.  With tears.  At the end of the meeting, I received hugs, a few telephone numbers, more information and a determination to see this through, comforted in the knowledge that not only do I have a higher being, but so does my loved one in trouble.

About Maura Satchell, writer and artist

Novelist, artist, seeker. Curious to a fault, I rarely say no to an adventure and that gift has led me on some heart-stirring journeys. I regret nothing.
