I Remember When......

I can remember the very first time I met my fiance. 
 (He is the one in the red shirt)
I was packing and cleaning the house I was moving out of. I was with one of my friends at the time we went to my storage to put stuff in there. Well as many of you may or may not know I am a recovering alcoholic/addict. I am going on three years clean and sober in August. I am most proud of. That is another story.
And the two of us (her more than me) was looking for our next fix. As I had to "pay" her for helping me, some friend. Anyways she seen this guy on his bike and yelled out to him. I stopped the car as she chatted with him. He went to the empty house and we chatted. She introduced us and he seemed pretty shocked to know it was me. I did not know if it was because I got a bad rap from my former boyfriend. (He was a cheating boyfriend and I got blamed for just about all the things that went wrong in his life. Now that is another story to tell.)
I am still curious as to his first thoughts of me ( my fiance). I think I will ask him when he gets home from work. Anyways that was the first time I met my fiance and I am proud to say we have been together for 2 years and have a beautiful baby girl together.

I just want to say that I am proud of my recovery and I have come a long way. I also wanted to change and make my life better for myself and my kids. So if you know someone struggling with alcohol or drugs don't give up on them. They may want to change and may have lost all hope in doing so. They need the support and love from family and friends.
 I do not forget where I have come from and I do not look down on those with any type of life's problems, nor do I judge, as only God can Judge. I do believe everything happens for a reason and I sure have gone through so much during my life, which as made me the strong person I am today. I also like to help others by sharing my stories with the hopes of touching someone's heart in any way to help save them.

That is one of my memories and I will be sure to do Wednesday's Walks to share more memories, who know I may help someone in the process.
