Song: Lullaby for a Recovering Addict  Posted by Jake Silver

This song brought tears to my eyes, as I related to one of the voices in the song. I was brought back to a place where I let a lot of things and people in my life go, because I was not willing to let go of heroin. For years, I regretted all that I lost in those deep, dark days of my addiction. But, now nearly six years later, I realize that everything happened for a reason, and what I lost, I eventually gained back in myself...and that was when I found myself on this path to happiness, this full circle trek, to a place where all the sadness makes sense. Finally. And I realize, that I am exactly where I am supposed to be, and always have been, I guess. Each thing shaped me, leading here to the place I stand today, with tears in my eyes, as I relate to that desperate voice of long ago, calling out from the pit of the addiction. And a smile takes over my face, as I remember those times, to finally realize, that , yes, it all happened for a reason. And I am thankful for that. I am even more thankful to be standing here, amid my own life, that I have come to love so much. It truly has come full circle for me. -Eliza Player
