My brother

Can you believe my chillins are sleeping in this morning? It's 8:30am. HOLY COW.

So with this unexpected GIFT of time, I am enjoying moments of reflection. And my incredible brother entered my mind.

I won't recap everything, but the basic story is that Justin has been struggling with substance abuse for a decade (or more?).

And in this month of June, I am proud to say that he is celebrating 5 months of sobriety.

I am so very proud of him. What courage, strength, and will it is taken for Justin to face himself. What's beautiful is that, while he acknowledges his role in the recovery process, he believes it to be the partnership with God that has made the active journey of restoration possible.

My brother is back. Jackson and Sullivan's uncle is back.

I am in tears, feeling thankful for Justin's chance to experience WHOLE life. Praise!
