Christmas was special to me when I was a child. I looked forward to my parents’ big party every Christmas Eve. I don’t know why—for a kid who always resented the appearance of the happy family—being asked to play the role in so many ways…that was the one night when I got completely into it.

Maybe Christmas Eve was the night my family really did bury the hatchets and become a beautiful couple with a bright son enjoying the company of their friends with a tree, beautiful lights and delicious food.

The people my mother, my father and I were on Christmas Eve were not frauds. It was the three of us not being scared and angry, and believing that we could be happy and achieve a celebration. We didn’t live our lives that way, but we could have. We had that in us.

Guess I'm angry about that, but also hopeful. I still have that in me somewhere.

David,

You do indeed have that in you. Maybe this is just me, but I firmly believe that none of a boy's true value and character is destroyed by abuse. In recovery we reclaim the potential that was ours all along.

Much love,
Larry
