In the shadows of our child's struggles with addiction, we find ourselves tending to a life for which we weren't prepared. Yet that place also holds great opportunity for personal growth. These meditations provide encouragement and understanding for those who are realizing that recovery rarely follows a neat or comfortable path. Along the way, we plant beautiful roses only to be injured by their thorns, and we pull up unwanted dandelions that, at times, are our only source of wishes. By sharing the experiences that are unique to families facing addiction, Tending Dandelions offers wisdom, support, and inspiration for the recovery journey.
"We all need to take a close look at the things we don't want to look at--the things lurking around in this place where love and addiction meet--so we're as strong as we can be." -Tending Dandelions
