Tending Dandelions

Honest Meditations for Mothers with Addicted Children
  • By Sandra Swenson
By sharing the realities they never expected their families to face, mothers of addicted and alcoholic children support each other through experiences that can only be feared and imagined by others. But, developing from those shared struggles are lives of new-found understanding and personal growth--because together, we are stronger. 
"We all need to take a closer look at the things we've avoided--the things lurking around in this place where love and addiction meet--so we're as strong as we can be." 
--Sandra Swenson, author of Tending Dandelions 
In the shadows of our child's struggles with addiction, we find ourselves tending to a life for which we weren't prepared. 
 These meditations continue the tradition of Hazelden's beloved meditation books by providing moments of recognition, confession, and healing for those who are realizing that recovery rarely follows a neat or comfortable path. Along the way, we plant beautiful roses only to be injured by their thorns, and we pull up unwanted dandelions that, at times, are our only source of wishes. 
 By sharing the realities we never expected our families to face, mothers of addicted children support each other through experiences that can only be feared and imagined by others. From our shared struggles emerge opportunities for personal growth. Tending Dandelions is a vital source of wisdom, support, and strength that helps us begin our own journey of recovery.
