Accepting their windfalls
When our kids are active and they end up with large sums of money we have to batten down the hatches and pray to our Higher Power.
It’s their money and there is not much else we can do but apply the following line from a prayer I once read;
ACCEPT THE THINGS I CAN NOT CHANGE
Perhaps they will waste the money. We must accept. Maybe that money will put them on a tear of a drug run like we have never seen before. We must accept. We must let them learn to manage money.
Perhaps at the end of that “run” they will have hit bottom. Perhaps the money will be the thing that turns them towards recovery. Who knows?
Guess what? That is called projecting. Don’t do it! Projection is the biggest flaw in my recovery. I have to remind myself to Let go and let God and accept. It is a work in progress.
Accept the things you cannot change… Inheritances and lottery winnings included!
Peace and strength
