Value of life

Last Sunday at our church group get together, we shared our week's blessings by telling inspiring stories that happened the past week. I was struck by this fellow who narrated a letter he received from one of our group mates before who once went astray. But now with the help of our group, we were able to refer him to undergo treatment. He had a good recovery there and now he's living a normal life.

On his letter shared to us. He was very thankful for our help, support and humor. He said it was an incredible experience, one he could never have imagined in his wildest dreams. According to him, it is so much more fun tripping out on life instead of drugs or alcohol. There’s a whole new world that has opened up for him and being able to show up for himself and life is one of the most exciting parts of his recovery inside the center. After that we were all teary eyed which are tears of joy knowing someone still found the value and hopes in life.
