So many thoughts about this homeless man with the golden voice on the news. I’ve watched the video of him on Good Morning America two or three times and love seeing this kind of thing happen.
I saw the second piece today. The reunion of he and his mom. Of course I wanted her to embrace him with open arms like the prodigal son, but she was guarded like anyone whose been dealing with alcoholism for many years.
I was glad to hear him say he’s got two years of sobriety behind him. In the program they say it takes two years before a person has sure footing in their life, so that gives me some hope that all this fame won’t send him into a binge.
I’ve been in recovery for 38 years come Feb. and I’ve seen alot of very wonderful people go back to drinking or using drugs because of life’s pressures. One of the area’s that seem to be lacking in their lives is the spiritual part of the program and this man, Ted Williams, definitely seems to be working that part of his program, so if he can take all of this a day at a time, I think this will be just fantastic.

Do me a favor. Please send some thoughts of love and protection to him so that he can stay standing and not let it all become too much. I’ve seen booze destroy people and I’ve also seen fame and money destroy them, so lets send out some good solid positive energy to this man. And how about to each other!!!
Thanks for checking in…………enjoy your week-end.
