Merry Christmas Dinner

Each and everyone of these women are an extension of Rob for me. A few of us have lost our beautiful babies to the disease of addiction, and the rest of these women work hard every day to succeed in their recovery. Tonight, Connie, Cindy, Valerie and I got to witness how our children live on through helping others. What a beautiful gift! Merry Christmas ladies, and thank you all for helping to save me ❤️💚

Most of the time, I am thankful that the old version of me is gone. I was lost, selfish, and … Read More
