My T has given me on loan the 12 step program. I have been working on step 3, plus i have been giving some thought on asking for help from my higher power.
Little Pete and I have been working on this religion part for the last 3 weeks. We even got the courage to go into a church. we didn't feel at home right away. But we atleast made an attempt at it. But little Pete told me hey, lets give it another chance. Ok, so we went again last Sunday, it felt a little bit better. Then I had given it some thought about talking to the Catholic priest at that church. Is there a place for little Pete & me there? After all these years.
Even after I had denounced HIM and HIS Mother here in this web site and in my heart and soul.
So he listned to me and my story, he listned to me ask for some help in coming back to the religon of my birth. And the very institution who had given me a HOME, compassion, understanding and love. They fed me, gave me shelter & a 4 year education.
He welcomed me back, but I have a lot of work to do to get back in the good graces of God & HIS Mother, as they never left me. But I was the one that left them.
So another small step for little Pete, asking for help from God. Now thats progress indeed.
"I will take that lost boys hand, and I will take him from the darkness into the sunshine, forever into eternity".
One small step at a time.
