The Power of Love

Isn’t love grand, :).

crying boyWhilst I was stood raging with drunken anger again, shouting at my partner and children, our 7-year old son Kyle came up to me and tightly hugged my legs.

He looked up at me, right in the eye, and said “Love you dad” whilst tears ran down his little face.

That moment of genuine, pure love stopped me shouting immediately. I remember it literally stopped my anger in its tracks. In place of rage I felt nothing but my own sadness and self-loathing.

I began to cry too and hugged my son back hard.

Since then I have come to believe that love is everything, absolutely everything.

I haven’t had a drink now for over 11 months.
