    Update. Made amends to my 2 daughters and my best friend. It’s kind of anti climatic, but they all seemed to appreciate as evidenced by the hugs 🙂

    Also, Carol, I sent out two letter today to general delivery in the cities where my first love lived, and where mt Dad grew up. (They’re both dead)

    Next up, Ex-Bosses and Co-workers, and finally the Ex Wife.

    I told my husband and kids and various others I was sorry for my behaviour while using. And they all said “no need for that, we’re happy you’re sober”. So I guess I’m making living amends.
    As for my deceased parents, I feel where ever they are, they know.
    After reading these posts, I’m beginning to think maybe I did a superficial job!?

    step 9 starts out with ‘Good Judgment”… ppfftt!, took some time to aquire that…

    on my 4th, i put down my biggest resentment… my crackhead ex-roomy…

    i was three days in a self-detox… hurt’n as bad as can be… this hop’d up nit-wit grab’d me by my neck, and tossed me into the wash’n machine…Twice!…i was so bruised up and sore… and theres plenty more to this story…

    i said, no way will i ever forigive him for this, and many other things he has done to me…

    about two years later, he comes over… first reaction was… get the hell oud’a here… nope, my little power that be in my head said… dont say it…

    i asked him to come in… sit down… theres something i would like to say to you… i then said… CH… i would like to say i am no longer that person you new… i apologize for my actions that night… will you fogive me… well, CH looked at me like i grew another head…
    he didnt even remember the incident…

    then i said, is there anything else… his head spun…

    i have made many amends in recovery… no one made such a mark on my recovery as this one…

    the real power of forgiveness…

    the one i said no, i will never forgive…

    i took responsability for my part… i asked him to be my roomy in the first place… then, i shure didnt see it that way…

    the last line from step 9…

    “the well being of others at the same time, is the very spirit of step nine”

    that i try to do in my life today… its no longer all about me!

    xxoo, & bless… pattee
