Sometimes we addicts tend to think it's us against the world. It's easy for many of us to be negative whether things are good or bad.
But I was reminded of how many good people there are in our world when my daughter and her brother were lost in the Grand Canyon the week before last.
I'm still receiving messages of congratulations from people I've never met. From the time they disappeared I received prayers and good wishes from those who were taking their time to hope for a good outcome.
I don't think I received a word of negativity about the fact that they attempted such an arduous journey without more preparation - as I was thinking.
But the real point of this is that we feel much better when we receive the compassion of others when times are tough.
And to those who sent me such kind wishes I send my thanks and love for their support. May they and their families prosper in every area of their lives.
