That I would be good.....

that I would be good even if I did nothing

that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down

that I would be good if I got and stayed sick

that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt

that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth

that I would be great if I was no longer queen

that I would be grand if I was not all knowing

that I would be loved even when I numb myself

that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed

that I would be loved even when I was fuming

that I would be good even if I was clingy

that I would be good even if I lost sanity

that I would be goodwhether with or without you

-Alanis Morrisette

This is what I want. This is what I need.

My son has just completed his first week at an adolescent treatment program which hopefully will keep him for 1 year. I glimpsed him last night at a graduation of 2 other kids (we were not supposed to acknowledge each other or make eye contact). He writes to us weekly. I think he's happier there - our home life had gotten really horrible. I think they tell him every single thing he needs to do at any given moment. He needs that. My fingers are crossed. How wonderful it would be if he would be open to the 12-step message they are giving him.
